    Is also a "registered independent."  Gates is a Republican, that's how he is broadly perceived.

    In fact, the idea that he is a registered independent will be used by the right to demand additional republican cabinet appointments.  Give them an inch...

      about the right wing spin, and more about the do and do not's of the Obama administration.  The country pretty much accepted in large measure that Obama meant what he said and backed it up, he maintained fairly high favorables in the worst of all the mudslinging and spin, people continued to say he understood them, and he's getting good press now for 'competence', a word that is music to the public's ears.

      Spin has been relatively ineffective so far, when Obama speaks to people they tend to listen to him, not the spinners.  So instead of watching the right wing hater's reactions, look at public reaction, ordinary people will keep Obama in office, ordinary people will choose to believe Obama or the right wing.   Think ordinary instead of the insider's game for a while.
