  •  I've been using the metaphor of the sharp end (9+ / 0-)

    of the wedge since his 1st term began.
    as an alternative to the blunt end or the magical "lefty" wand that so many wanted him to wave around and decree a grand new progressive state in America.

    I've also used the concept of a lever, to explain how he needed the power of the more progressive, the moderate, and the centrists to gain leverage enough to move the dead weight (gop).

    I think his timing is just right. Thank God (or just the American electorate) that he was re-elected.

    You can't make this stuff up.
