    is how blind the GOP is. It's as if they didn't see the revolutionary way in which Obama mobilized his supporters to win the election and how we're all still engaged to help him push his ideas forward. This is great. Yes. We. Will.

    The lesson of that history is that you must not despair, that if you are right, and you persist, things will change. -Howard Zinn

      Just like McCain underestimated Obama, after seeing what happened to Hillary. The GoP couldn't process the fact that the 2 million people who showed up on the Washington mall plus the millions who watched from afar were not simply inaugural tourists. That we mean business, the Chicago organizer's movement is REAL is something they will awaken to very belatedly. Did Palin and Giuliani not mock community organizers at the RNC convention? Seems they still don't realize what hit them. When Obama kept saying "let's go change this country and change the world" they thought it was a starry-eyed slogan. I tell ya they got another think coming.

      "What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them." -- Pres. Obama (1/20/2009)
