  •  and speaking of the Constitution (2+ / 0-)

    I seem to remember a candidate who argued that as a Constitutional Law professor he knew, respected and followed the Constitution. But we find his Justice Department continuing some of the absurd arguments of the Bush administration table.

    I also remember a President who said the negotiations on health care would be on CSpan.  Hmm, what about the backroom deals cut with the pharmaceutical manufacturers to keep them from publicly opposing?

    Sorry, but I think we have every right to demand better.  On education I think I have been consistent even back to the primaries, where one reason I was not an early Obama supporter was precisely the weakness of his positions on education.

    I have supported him when I believe he was right, and have on occasion found myself slammed for it, here.

    On education, I will continue to try to change those policies I think are wrong.
