A comment by a high-ranking member of Barack Obama’s transition team seemingly hinted at the mind-set of the incoming administration.

Valerie Jarrett, co-chair of the transition team, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday and said that “given the daunting challenges that we face, it’s important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule [on] day one.”

Warner Todd Huston observed on the NewsBusters Web site that “rule” is a word “that reflects the worst fears that people have for Obama the ‘arrogant,’ the ‘messiah,’ that he’s here to ‘rule’ instead of govern.

“Someone needs to get to Jarrett and inform her that American politicians are not kings and do not ‘rule’ from office.”
