So far, only the promises:

"[T]he ambitious plan [Obama] announced . . . to create 2.5 million public-works and alternative-energy jobs will be far more costly than previously discussed. Along with other possible steps to turn the economy around, it could cost the government as much as $700 billion. That would be four times the size of the $175 billion stimulus package that Obama promoted as a presidential candidate."

"Obama [will] . . . postpone advancing a centerpiece of his campaign - - a tax increase for people earning more than $250,000 a year."

Turning the page on Clinton-era Washington insiders? "New York Fed chief Timothy Geithner [is] Obama's Treasury secretary. . . . Obama is expected to name Lawrence Summers, Treasury secretary under President Bill Clinton, as head of the National Economic Council. . . . Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, the former first lady and Obama's main Democratic primary foe, will be secretary of state."

Let's HOPE! he doesn't CHANGE! any more campaign promises.
