Whatever I can do to help reelect President Obama and provide him with a majority in both houses of Congress so as to end the gridlock in Washington, D.C., I will do. I urge all other voters to do the same.
Even as this horrible electoral experience saddened me, I still maintain hope that the current craziness will pass. Remember, although it's generally three steps forward and two steps back, progressive thought always triumphs in the end.
The election last week of Republican Robert Turner to Congress is significant for several reasons. One is that the result will be widely perceived as a rebuke to President Obama and the Democratic Party, which it is.
While Democrats are sticking to the old script, Republicans seem to have grown up a little. On a nationwide scale, Republicans are spurning feel-good solutions and vague promises. Instead, the GOP is offering tough decisions and priority setting. And it seems to be working.
