Bill Clinton declared the Era of Big Government "over." Well, it's back, with a stimulus package big enough to start re-shaping the economy.  We look at the possible impacts now and in the long term.  What will it mean for free trade and the global economy?  Also, a bumpy road ahead for Obama cabinet picks, and Iraq's elections were peaceful.  Does that mean US troops can leave sooner than currently scheduled?
