    because it is a gimmick. Your 1st blockquote is correct.

    The idea is dead, was DOA, and all DKos' men and all DKos' horses won't breathe it back to life again.

    •  The move for the coin (0+ / 0-)

      didn't start at DKos and won't end here either. Also, whether or not it's really dead depends on one man, the President of the United States.

      •  Nothing in a democracy depends on one man (0+ / 0-)

        As the first blockquote of this diary indicates, unless there is broad national support for this measure, it will be seen as a gimmick. And a nation cannot balance its books on the back of a gimmick.
