Ringing in the changes
On Day Two, President Obama signs off on the end of Gitmo and waterboarding, amongst other harsh interrogation methods (aka torture). But just as important, he is about to reverse two of Bush's most backward, ideology-driven policies - "overturning the so-called Mexico City policy that forbids U.S. funding for family planning programs that offer abortion, and lifting President George W. Bush's limit on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research."
