Good News: CNN Now Polling On How Wonderful the Obama Transition Is

I'm not joking. They took a f---ing poll on his transition. I think I'm going to be ill. Naturally, America is head over heels in love. It must be the abs.
Hawaii's always been a great spot for honeymoons — and Barack Obama, who's spending the holiday season there on the beach at Kailua, is unquestionably having one of the best in modern presidential history.

Eighty-two percent of those questioned in a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Wednesday morning approve of the way the Obama is handling his presidential transition. That's up 3 points from when we asked this question at the beginning of December. Fifteen percent of those surveyed disapprove of the way Obama's handling his transition, down 3 points from our last poll.

The 82 percent approval is higher than then President-elect George W. Bush 8 years ago, who had a 65 percent transition approval rating, and Bill Clinton, at 67 percent in 1992.
I honestly had no idea they polled the transition of previous presidents. I would surmise in Bush's case that relatively low number compared with Obama had a little something to do with that messy recount in Florida after Gore tried to steal the election.

Somehow I doubt the messy Blagojevich scandal was mentioned to those polled. Just a hunch.

Meanwhile, here's your obligatory Obama workout story of the day. Word has it he broke a sweat. Sorry, ladies, no fresh shots of Buff Barry.
