Change We Can Believe In

During both the primary and Presidential campaigns, President Obama promised change. He is walking the walk.

ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper reports some promised change:
President Obama's expressed hope today in his weekly address "that we can avoid the political posturing and ideological brinksmanship that has bogged down this (Supreme Court nomination) process, and Congress, in the past" runs against another historical first for the 44th president: his unique role in history as the first US President to have ever voted to filibuster a Supreme Court nominee.
Newsbusters' Warner Todd Huston reports a second:
Roll Call is reporting that during the typical Friday afternoon document dump -- a practice used to hide actions that might prove somewhat embarrassing to the White House -- the administration quietly announced that some of the former restrictions on lobbying ballyhooed about during the late campaign have been lifted.
That's real change and I believe it.
