The dog that failed to bark in the night
As the disappointments come thick and fast, it would be tedious to list them all. But this one is worth mentioning because, being an offense of omission, it's likely to escape notice in most commentary:

Capital seems more than adequately represented.
Update: 4:30 pm, 10 December - The implicit disrespect shown for labor's role in setting economic policy can't be undone. But the appointment of Mary Beth Maxwell as Secretary of Labor would please me no end.
