Is there an equivalent to the magic wand in developing specific areas of a photo in light room?

The closest you can come is by having AutoMask active when using the Adjustment Brush.

I believe for isolating objects using the adjustment brush, auto mask is it. But for more extensive edits, you could of course always go into PS/PSE.

Thank you for your help. LR4 looks like nice simple effective editing software. Since spot removal is obviously a cloning device, it's too bad Adobe doesn't incorporate cloning and a few other features. Photographers' Ive talked to who do not generally need to manipulate images, like LR4, so I'll probably go with it. Again, thanks for your help.
