ABSTRACT
An editorial is presented arguing that changes in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush are more about public image than real reform. Domestic issues, such as health care, energy, immigration and balancing the national budget have been overlooked in favor of partisan politics, according to the author. The real problems facing America require carefully drafted policy changes, rather than changes among a few top presidential aides.
