    What can he push against when nothing is there?  Random rhetoric isn't his style.  And he's got what it takes to get this passed, with a strong public option, but only if we have his back.  

    Could we possibly put out the hair fires and keep pushing the Blue Dogs, the dumbass Republicans, and the fence-sitters?  And keep sending praise to the people who are on our side?

    I'm so tired of whining and hopelessness.

        I'm not willing to knuckle under to corporate media interests or the health care industry.  I still think we have a lot more power than anyone wants to give us credit for, and I think we do ourselves a disservice by getting all stressed out about possible failure.  It takes a long time to send e-mails and make phone calls every day.  It doesn't help me to push myself to do it if it feels hopeless.
