The media and pundits are now reporting Obama will use the power of executive order to reverse decissions on issues such as domestic oil drilling and stem cell reaserch. It's not too hard to imagine a new AWB or CCW ban could be there too.
John Podesta, Obama's transition chief, said Sunday Obama is reviewing President Bush's executive orders on those issues and others as he works to undo policies enacted during eight years of Republican rule. He said the president can use such orders to move quickly on his own.
"There's a lot that the president can do using his executive authority without waiting for congressional action, and I think we'll see the president do that," Podesta said. "I think that he feels like he has a real mandate for change. We need to get off the course that the Bush administration has set."
