  •  I mostly agree. (3+ / 0-)

    American voters: "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity." Major problem. #1 problem.

    BUT--even so, once every decade or three the planets align and the Dems get enough power to really do something.

    The Dems should know their opportunities will be rare. They should be ready to pounce on them. In 2009-10, they weren't ready enough.

    Yes, I give them credit for the stimulus, and healthcare reform, and student loan reform, and some other things. In most times, this would be a stellar record. But our times are extraordinary; the times demanded more; the Dems could see that, yet could not pull it together to deliver what we needed.

    And yes, I'll vote for them anyway, because the alternative is even worse.

    "The true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals." - Barack Obama
