In politics, every day is a new day!

Well, Kaohsiung Mayor Frank Hsieh has been named as President Chen Shui-bian's pick for the premier post. Though the rumors have been flying about for over a week, a number of people have tilted their heads and said, "I thought Chen didn't even like Hsieh, that they didn't get along. They are from different party factions." (Or something to that effect.)

So, I mentioned this today to a government official, and he just laughed and waved his hand at my naivite. "You know in politics, yesterday is just that, yesterday. Old enemies can become friends overnight."

If you want to check out Bloomberg's account on the Hsieh appointment, here it is.
