    Remember the crazy amount of lobbying for the public option? I've never seen anything like that before, and probably won't again. If there ever was a "make me do it", it was that lobbying and yet it was thrown out because the real deal had been sealed behind closed doors months before.

    So there's no point pretending that Obama is now prepared to listen to liberals.

        like to hear from the grassroots, I'm sure. I'd like to thank Senator Reid, & give him encouragement. Occupy the offices, the phone lines, the inboxes.

        2012-2016 President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Warren. For a LIFETIME, federal judges. Get the filibuster changed. Harry, the people have spoken. To all Democrats: do not reach across the aisle, your hand will get cut off. Steamroll.
