  •  WOW! The HRC may also help heal the Democratic (7+ / 0-)

    party of many Blue dog tumors and CONservative cancers!!   I did not quite see this.  I have to say, I've ripped on Harry and Nancy on past actions, and they deserved it, but in this, in putting out better bills that were thought possible a few weeks ago (yeah, House is less, Senate more...), they have put a lot of these tumors in the sunshine of public scrutiny.  Sunshine is a disinfectant!

    Of course, the progressive/liberal wing deserves mucho credit for keeping the pressure on and Obama for even pushing it in the first place (wherever he stands).  McCain/Palin would have had the debtors prisons in place by now and workcamps for the homeless, I suspect.

      we needed FDR, but we got Triangulating Hamlet instead.

      •  FDR was pretty conservative and hamstrung (0+ / 0-)

        also in his first administrations.  Of course, a coup attempt on him might have given him pause!  I hope Obama can grow into an FDR, just as FDR did.   WE have to make him, as FDR, and Obama has said.  Then we shall see.  

        Obama's certainly been disappointing on many issues, but I think there's hope.  A good cleaning of the Cabinet may go a long way.
