    you of all people should know not to paint in such broadstrokes. There are some of us like brooklynbadboy who know that legislative sausage making is nasty. I have not been around long but I studied the history and remember that had it been doable it would have already been done. Don't sell President Obama short. The bill has cleared ALL four of the committees thus far in the HOuse and one Senate committee with the Public Option intact. All we are left with is the Buacus circus and you throw up your arms in the air because there is a roadblock in the committee with senate primadonas who have been there since before Presidnet Obama finished high school? Sheesh.

    A major piece of legislation that changes a substantial part of the system is bound to be hard. If not why are we now tackling it with a prospect of succeeding when it eluded every other president. Sometimes I wonder what exactly people thought governing was going to be like. The campaign and election were the easy part. This country is wired hard for stasis in social policy. Where things are dynamic is in defense and the show of testosterone (no surprise there since this country was founded on violence and warmongering)

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