Obama aide says 'era of dithering' soon over

WASHINGTON — A top Democrat Sunday urged President-elect Barack Obama to get more personally involved now in efforts to help the economy, and not to wait until taking office on Jan. 20.

A senior Obama adviser, meanwhile, accused the Bush administration of doing little to help, vowing that things will change once Obama is sworn in. "The era of dithering is going to end," said Obama adviser Austan Goolsbee.
