  •  The bigger question... (none)
    ...is when does all this mess help Americans to agree en masse that, whatever sense of false security 25 years of relative prosperity half of us have enjoyed, the price to be paid for Republican errors of the the past three decades will ruin the lives of those those that live long enough see it. America is much more fucked up now than it was in the 60s and 70s. Ipso facto.

    Do the disasters that 25, 30, 35 years of Republican madness have given bring a new majority together, really together on environmental, economic, and global cultural issues that truly threaten us, now and in the future? The first Democrat with the guts to speak out on this, forcefully, without apology, does more than give voice to what the other half of America believes, she begins to end it now. Gore did this on a monthly basis during 2003. No other presidential contender, save Dean, has done it since then. Why don't any of the others step up?
