    In many ways, he is addressing exactly what you are talking about and places some perspective on the fact that Obama is the most progressive president in decades, but we also need to place this in context and the limits of what we can expect while recognising the positive changes. I've been wanting to show this to you to see what you think and this is the best opportunity as it is consistent with what you have addressed in the diary.

    I've tipped and rec'd the diary, we do need to move beyond a focus on Obama. There are differences certainly between people on tactics, there are differences on the extent of reform, but we do agree on the direction of reform.

    No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable (Adam Smith, 1776, I, p. 96).
