More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    here's a thoughtful look at the inaugural:

    Obama Speech Leaves G.O.P. Stark Choices from the NYT

    and here's a thoughtless one from Politico:

    Obama's big risk: The words he didn't say

    Apparently what he didn't say was "To Republicans, I have rethought the election and I have concluded you won."

    In this light, it’s worth pondering: How will Barack Obama’s supremely self-confident second inaugural address — with its high quotient of self-regard and minimally concealed contempt for opponents — be remembered 10 years from now?

    Usually Politico is just dumb but today it's pretty contemptible.

    Here's a different thoughtful piece:

    Red State Democrats’ Advice For Selling Gun Control

      Colo. Sheriff: Only Courts Can Rule on Gun Control

      The Colorado sheriff whose county includes the movie theater where 12 people were killed says law-enforcement officers have no right to ignore gun-control laws unless the courts rule them unconstitutional.
      Gun control sparks renewed fervor on both sides of debate

      Kansas City pastor Donna Simon says she’s picked up on that deepening conviction in conversations with members of her congregation at St. Mark Hope and Peace Lutheran Church on Troost Avenue.

      “I’m feeling from my folks,” Simon said, “an unwillingness to let it go this time.”

      By comparison, the fervor of gun-control opponents never flags. For decades, it’s been the secret to their success in fending off attempts to impose restrictions and to making gains with concealed carry and stand-your-ground laws.

      Unlike gun-control supporters, they can be counted on to support candidates who back gun rights and, according to Pew, are four to five times more likely to contribute to a group that takes positions on gun policy.

      Which is why, going back to the 1968 assassinations of Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., there’s been a tendency for this issue to burn hot for a while in the wake of gun-related tragedies, then dissipate on the pro-gun-control side when opponents of new gun restrictions dig in their heels.

      Indeed, the current debate in Congress will be won or lost based on whether proponents of new restrictions can equal or surpass the passion of the gun lobby.

  •  Filibuster Reform Question (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    We Won, Mary Mike

    Glad to see you will be talking filibuster reform on today's show.  I thought I'd throw out a couple of questions for you to ponder and maybe discuss on the show:

    1. Is Reid simply giving McConnell 24/36 hours as a fig leaf to be on record as having given Republicans an opportunity to negotiate real reforms, or does he really think that a compromise that both a Dems. and Reps. would embrace can be achieved?

    2. Is McConnell really going to propose some real (not joke) reforms today or is he simply going to let Reid move forward with the "Constitutional Option".

    3. What is your opinion of the 41 vote requirement (Flipping the burden) which Reid has apparently floated out there?  [IMO, I would like both the talking filibuster and the 41 vote requirement, but if forced to choose, I would go with the 41 votes.]

    "Some men see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream of things that never were and ask, 'Why not?"
