  •  Some will still (4.00)
    say Pelosi and Reid have not done enough.  I disagree with them.  With the hand we are dealt, Reid and Pelosi have done a marvelous job in the minority, leading their caucus with more unity among Democrats than has been seen in the last 20 years, even when we were in the majority.

    But political reality never seems to intrude upon the naysayers.  

    They will say that this is still not enough.

    •  Pelosi and Reid have been excellent (4.00)

        They really have. They have been far, far better leaders than the Gephardt and Daschle Enablers' Club ever was.

        The problems are that (a) the media works against our congressional leaders, and drowns out their voices in a sea of shrill wingnut bleats, and (b) there remain a few nominal Democrats who actively sabotage their efforts to suit their own agendas. (You know who they are.)

        Until we solve THOSE problems, Reid and Pelosi can only do so much.


      Republicans oppose abortion -- it happens eighteen years too early.

    •  I think they're doing a good job too (4.00)
      and like Atrios says, I like to reward good behavior I just gave 'em $15. It's money I don't really have, but then I thought Congressional Dems had no spines...if they can find their chutzpah, I figure I can find room in my budget.
