  •  measuring "possibility" (6+ / 0-)

    That's the trick, isn't it?  A generation of self-proclaimed "centrists" have said that the only things that are "possible" are all the deals they make with the right.  If they weren't all busy making possibilities impossible, a lot more would be possible in this country.  But their cynicism (and their arrogance in how they deal with liberals) are a big part of the problem.
    Without the "centrists," we needn't have had a war in Iraq (which nobody will stand up for now, even though the "centrists" were lecturing us about at the time), we needn't have indefinitely, lawless detentions, we needn't have drone wars in the Middle East, and I could go on...

    The persistence of the high unemployment rates, which could have been ameliorated with a proper approach to government stimulus, is a real consequence to actually existing poor people.

      we wouldn't have had Bush II, quite possibly would have avoided 9/11, and we wouldn't have had the war in the first place.

      But whatever - lets blame the people who said that we should vote for Gore and Kerry and Obama and fight for more progressive House and Senate candidates.

      When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.
