When President Obama announced the appointment on January 6 of former Clinton administration Commerce Secretary William Daley as his new Chief of Staff, he had nothing but high praises for him, calling him a "patriot" who represented a position of moderation without histrionics.

Several weeks ago, a liberal organization known as the Justice Movement asked Congress to pass legislation authorizing the formation of a constitutional convention in Philadelphia on July 4, 2011.
