  •  I think Obama is changing the dialogue. (6+ / 0-)

    Time will tell whether we can reverse the 30 years of massive income inequality growth.  He has changed teh narrative from Yopu're On You're Own of Reagan to We're All In It Together.  That changes will help make polices possible that were not posisble before.  Changing the narrative is more important than any one policy.  Thus, your education polciy argument is unconvincing to me.  

    I agree with you on this:

     

    I find it interesting that many DK commenters believe that Reagan wouldn't be at home in today's Republican Party. IMO he would be quite comfortable and in fact would be pushing the party further to the right.
    We're too close to determine whether Obama changing the narrative beyond his presidency.  That's my hope and what I will be working for.

    I'm glad Barack Obama is our President.
