Yglesias extrapolates: "The president-elect working hard while the president is hardly working. Of course, given what we've seen from the Bush administration it's probably just as well that he stick to pardoning turkeys and leave the policy response to Obama's team. If only he'd thought of this strategy when he first moved in to the White House."
