      There were other things they could have done as well.  He was a community organizer for god's sake, he could have done something.

      There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

        that's what i meant when i said it seemed like he made the wrong calculation in wielding his political capital.

        instead of spending it to really change things (like he talked about during the campaign), he decided to compromise w/a group of intransigent ideologues who had no intention of compromising -- at all!

        a bad misread on his part, imo.
