Two images tell two stories

That’s the leadership team for the Majority Democratic Party.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, a craftily created third position to reward Chuck Schumer for his Democratic Senatorial Committee job, and fourth in command Patty Murray.

And, sadly standing in the background, looking out of place, wondering what might have been, John Kerry.  (Kudos to Tim Riley.)

Am I to believe that the final two years of the current Bush Admininistration going to be a restoration of the old Bush Administration?  (Curiously, when Bush tumbled into office, I had assumed that the new Bush would be something of a stupider second act for the first Bush Administration.  Things didn’t quite work out that way.)  It seems to be the new media narrative, and it is jarring.
