      But you have to focus on realpolitik. Or you wind up in worst straits than we're in now.

      The Senate stall on HCR doomed the Dems, it threw everything off, the country became sick and tired of the sausagemaking, we ran out of time and political capital to get an energy (jobs,jobs,jobs) bill through.
      There's a bunch of jobs in the pipeline now due to the stimulus spending that re-energized the wind/solar development.
      It's important going forward that the Dems own the jobs agenda, the GOP will of course, take credit for what the Dems created. Job growth will be slow, unless, of course, the GOP/Wall Street get another freaky bubble economy going. But Dem success on all the idealistic things will depend on jobs/middle class issues. There's only one direction the economy can expand, that's into clean, renewable, domestic, energy,energy conservation and efficiency, and a 21st cent infrastructure. The GOP will be obstructing this for at least 2 more years, so we have time to sell this to the voter. Let's not waste our energy on holier than thou chest beating, and let's not retreat back into our enclaves of liberal comfort.
