Hope, Change, and the Iraq Displacement Crisis
Barack Obama, elected
on a platform that promised "change," is in meetings with
his transition team, weighing decisions about cabinet posts and
administration assignments. As media analysts feed greedily at the
prospects of Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State and Robert Gates
continuing as Secretary of Defense, the whole world is watching.
Displaced Iraqis - both within Iraq and in neighboring
countries - are, arguably, among those with the most at stake.
