>> President Obama announced in India today that he supports the country's bid for a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council, a move that could definitely aggravate China. Get down with your bad self, India. (the New York Times)

>> Obama stayed in the Mumbai hotel of the Nov. 26, 2008, terrorists attacks by Pakistani Islamic militants. Foreign terrorists are so scary, but wait: One of the plotters, though, was American small-time drug dealer David Headley. Sent by the D.E.A.! (the New York Times)

>> U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the lone Bush holdover in Obama's cabinet, said Congress should repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ASAP before the Republican majority takes control of the House. Gay activists, listen to the Republican. (the Washington Post)

>> Governor-elect of Hawaii Neil Abercrombie said he'd sign same-sex civil unions into law if passed by the legislature, which has a Democratic majority that approved a civil-unions bill earlier this year. This will do wonders for Hawaii's tourism industry. (the Washington Post)

>> And finally: After MSNBC TV host Keith Olbermann was "indefinitely suspended" last Friday for donating to three Democratic candidates, he'll now return to the news station tomorrow. I've had longer lunch breaks. (Mediaite)
