…Bush is engineering what may be the most carefully considered and potentially successful presidential transition in modern times, both Democrats and Republicans close to the process say.
The president started the preparations last spring, ordering federal agencies to get ready for a new administration, with deadlines for various tasks. By August, White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten had persuaded representatives of Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama to join in. The advance work may get the new president off to a fast start, participants say.
“I do feel pretty good about this one,” says Harrison Wellford, a former White House and congressional aide who has worked on presidential transitions since Jimmy Carter’s back in 1976 and is now advising Obama. “The White House and the agencies are doing a good job, learning from mistakes of the past.”
Will wonders never fucking cease.
