Smoke-filled rooms. . .

Bush is angry that Obama's people have leaked details of a conversation between the two involving auto industry bailouts, rather than keeping these types of conversation in the smoke-filled rooms where they belong.

"Senator Obama would be wise to keep close counsel," a top Bush source warned.

It kind of sucks that Obama wants to bail out yet another corporation, but I view this step toward transparency as an unambiguously positive sign. Is there a chance that we could have Obama himself discuss his plans and policies next time (those not directly involving national security) rather than hearing about them through anonymous leaks? The Bush administration has been about as transparent with the American people as a lead-lined bunker, so even leaks are a step up.
