A very valuable characteristic of leadership is recognizing the boundaries of your responsibilities. Those folks who are pushing Obama into the Chicago scandal before he has the green light from Fitzgerald have their own agenda. There are obviously folks who would like to know more about what Fitzgerald is not talking about. Obama is right to let the Justice Department lead the way on this one. After all he is only the President Elect. The Justice Department still works for the President.
