Obama and 'The Godfather'

John Deeth has a wonderfully entertaining post about Barack Obama and parallels with his political moves and some of the president-elect's favorite movies -- the first two "Godfather" installments.

One of the very first posts I wrote on this site, six years ago, was titled "Everything I Needed To Learn I Learned From The Godfather." I'd seen the movie when I was young, but it wasn't until I was middle aged, with a decade or so in politics behind me, that I really got the Machiavellian machinations and political parallels.

So now we have a fun tool with which to analyze the new administration.
