The Jedi Mind Trick

In just two weeks Obama has convinced both the left netroots and the thinking conservatives that he's serving both of their interests. It's amazing. Read these two posts and see if they are talking about the same President-Elect. Al Girodano is reassuring the left that Obama is making all the right personnel moves and that the whole Daily Kos crowd should be satisfied. On the other hand Ross Douthat, the intellectual, conservative columnist for The Atlantic thinks that the Obama transition, so far, has been great for conservatives.  This really is the Jedi mind trick.
