    ... lock stock and barrel Corporate Democrats and Democrats like Warren and Sherrod Brown, you'll never have a clear view of what a high hill we have to climb. The non-Corporate Democrats were in a minority in the House and Senate even in 2007-2010. If they had been a majority, the public option would never have gotten stripped out of the health care reform in the way that it was.

    The ability to distinguish between the corporate Democrats and the corporate Republicans doesn't mean we should be satisfied with D's who are simply intent on driving the country into climate suicide at a moderately slower rate than the R's are intent on doing.

    •  I'm not "satisfied." (0+ / 0-)

      I'm a socialist! However, I'm also a realist. I referred to Dr. King before. He always kept his eyes on the prize, but he was also always happy to accept any progress on the way, and keep on marching. Instead of being daunted by the height of the hill, we need to remember the goal but concentrate on the steps.

      And you bring up climate change. You know very well that President Obama has done quite a lot that a Republican would not have done. Will it be enough? That I can't say, and I'm leaning toward "No, more needs to be done." But it's a lot for him to have done by Executive order, with little help from Congress.
