Even The Think Tanks Shifting Obama's Way

Over at The New Republic, Michelle Cottle describes how "Hillary's" think tank -- the Center on American Progress -- got Obamafied (CAP Trade).  According to Cottle, Obama "has captured the affections of a Beltway institution widely seen as an unofficial outpost of Team Hillary: the Center for American Progress."

Wow.  Two years ago I wrote about the way things used to be:  "Does everybody have to have their own think tank these days -- Hilary has the Center, so Barack gets Hamilton?." (Not Another Center-Left Think Tank).  Some of this shift isn't new, of course.  Longtime readers will remember that Cassandra Butts, who does some of CAP's education work, is a longtime Obama ally.
