Obama: Hope, Change And A Veto Threat

Obama is still a week away from actually becoming President and he's already threatening his fellow Democrats with vetoes.

Lawmakers who emerged from the session said the president-elect pledged to correct what they believe were shortcomings in the way the Bush administration handled the first $350 billion. They added he would veto any attempt to block his own administration's use of the funds.

Oh, well he promises not do be stupid with $350 billion so it's all good, right?

Here's the thing, I think there should be oversight on how the money is spent, I'm just not sure congressional Democrats and I would be on the same page as to what constitutes good use of that money. I wonder why I have this funny feeling we're screwed either way.
