YOU'D ROO THE DAY HE WAS PUT IN CHARGE:

Barack Obama aide: Why Winnie the Pooh should shape US foreign policy (Tim Shipman, 16/06/2008, Daily Telegraph)

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”


And they wonder what folks meant when they said the grown-ups were back in charge in 2001?
