  •  I agree. (0+ / 0-)

    And I think the president is also beginning to agree. I think in addition to being no dummy, he's also a very fierce competitor which means one must adapt to realities. He's had and will have to continue to overcome his own hubris about what he could achieve his way, and change his game plan.

    But yes, in a world where they're going to obstruct no matter what you say why not go for broke---with this caveat. A new president may in many ways have more power than ever again, but he/she---someday the she, huh?---is also untested and unproven---imo nevermore so than in the crisis that Obama walked into, with a black face.

    I do believe America has been center right for quite awhile, perhaps unconsciously and easily, given the lack of challenge of 9/11 or the Great recession, and maybe for all the wrong reasons, but the bulk of our legislation since Regan will tell you that is true. I think the pendulum is beginning to swing, and as a stalwart progressive, I too would like to see the president bat it a little harder.

    But then every time I walk out of my blue bubble---friends, neighborhood, state and of course this beloved site---I see what he faces.

    Nevertheless, learning fast is the prerequisite of any great leader.  I hope our president measures up.  I see signs he might.

    Thank you for the conversation.
