    President Obama, I didn't even bring him up.

    It's about a strategic stance towards acheiving our progressive agenda.

    But, as long as you bring it up, yes, I do wish President Obama move closer to King, than he has for the last two and a half years.

    I could be widely successful with this posture.  Many of us voted for him in the hope he would be more like Dr King, in terms of the depth of his progressive vision, and his passion, and courage in expressing it.

    Today, he did it outstandingly well.

    It's about time.  

    But, a much appreciated support for our Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid recipients.  He knows how to do it.  And, he does it well.

    I was proud and happy to see him back on the trail today.

    And, back into his game.

    I'll grant he had a lot to deal with coming into office, and a lot to learn.

    Well, get there.  

    Real progress, always takes longer than we expect.  Even when we know it will.  

    The means is the ends in the process of becoming. - Mahatma Gandhi
