The Warren Nomination: Perhaps the Ds are learning something about this "politics" stuff

The news that the President will appoint Elizabeth Warren may indicate a non-flat learning curve. Warren is eminently qualified (although I would not be so cavalier to dismiss concerns about whether her expertise translates into building an effective agency, I do not think they outweighed her obvious positive credentials) and the logical choice. She is also the smart political choice. At a time when the Administration desperately needs to rally its base to turn out to vote, they need something to cheer.

While this would have taken the Bushies 5 minutes to figure out, it took the Obama people a long time to overcome what appears to be the core democratic instinct to piss on their base.
