Whatta finish to 2008.  
This month alone, we’ve seen:
• Barack Obama choose churchman Rick Warren to give the inauguration invocation, which promptly sent Barney Frank and other diehard supporters into heartbreak
Bernard Madoff, prominent trader and ahem… traitor, get caught for allegedly masterminding a $50 billion Ponzi scheme among A-listers, which also appears to have further unhinged yet more shaky ground in New York City’s real estate and financial markets
•  Our less-than-dutiful Congress skip out for the holidays without making a decision on the auto bailout, giving George Bush his last executive decision, or mistake...
•  The scoop on Bill Clinton’s charity accepting millions from foreign investors, which might cast clouds of caution as Hilary Clinton’s selection as potential Sec of State...
