    He is a good guy, a smart guy, a wonderful dad and husband as far as I can tell, and I hoped he would surround himself with fewer buffoons than W did. His was a historic election, and I am pleased that it happened in my lifetime. But he could have been our FDR, really.

    You know, I just remembered one other thing I said, which was that I knew they would NEVER pick me to have dinner with him.

    And I did not even tell them that I was trying to decide between bringing Marcos or Digby. Yeah, I would leave my 13 year old son home from a chance to meet the President to take someone who would press the progressive cause.

    George W. Bush: the worst Republican president SO FAR.

      But there are ways to bring politicians more to the left. It starts with the electorate, basically bottom up. It takes time, but if it was as easy as meeting with the President and asking him to prosecute Bush on torture, it would have been done by now.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.
