President Obama once said to Vladimir Putin, in one of these famous "open mike" episodes, that he would have "more flexibility" in a second term, in that he would not again have to face the voters.
What Mr. Obama meant at the time was that he would have "more flexibility" to placate the Russian desire for power and influence (in the Middle East, for example) at the expense of American power and influence. But the President has apparently discovered that he has "more flexibility" in domestic affairs as well. It is difficult to understand how, otherwise, he could nominate a flaming radical to be an Assistant Attorney General. Is this how he's planning to promote racial healing?
