Poor Incurious George

This teaser from The Guardian says it all:

"Barack Obama has spoken with Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton and other advisers about the situation in Gaza, but he has so far declined to say how he would respond to the crisis. Is he correct to let the Bush administration speak for the US?"

The implications of the question itself are stunningly audacious. When was the last time any media queried whether a president-elect, still nearly three weeks distant from inauguration, is "correct" to allow the sitting president to still speak for his country? I can answer that for you, never.
