Best Turn of Phrase This Morning

In Charles Krauthammer's column this morning on the rehabilitation of President Bush's reputation, he comments on how many holdovers Barack Obama is keeping from the Bush administration. According to Krauthammer, Obama is vindicating Bush's judgment by retaining his people. The key phrase occurs thus:

"Vindication is being expressed not in words but in deeds -- the tacit endorsement conveyed by the Obama continuity-we-can-believe-in transition."

I wish I had thought of that.
