Current Events Reprised

In the midst of endless headlines about various economic bailout strategies, I happened upon some news of a different bailout. Turns out the records of one Colin McRae were recently unearthed and disgorged a wealth of imformation about the English and French bailout of the Confederacy in 1863.
Along with bailout headlines are the endless speculations about the personalities and motivations of various potential members of President-elect Obama's Cabinet. This narrative fits closely with the Obama-Lincoln parallels, and this LA Times editorial sounds a warning about packing too many rivals into one's cabinet, especially those who may have their own aspirations to the Oval Office.
