    might have given.  I couldn't understand why he just bowed out.  But this time we shouldn't wait for politicians to lead.

      even as I wrote I was "waiting" for Gore to lead. But, bottom line is, people were out in the streets then, hugely. It just fizzled out. People have been out in the streets, for OWS, at other times. I do believe it would take both a groundswell from beneath, as we have seen, and a leader who is both within the political sphere and able to risk it all and lay it on the line simultaneously for the kind of change we seek to take place. Maybe Elizabeth Warren is such a person. I honestly don't know. I see groundswells and have seen them..... what it takes to break the stranglehold in this country I do not know.
