Why I'm still "In".
Because we don't have a president problem, we have a congress problem. Maha explains...
Bottom line, the single biggest reason FDR was more effective at getting his programs passed was not that he was “tougher” or gave better speeches, but that he enjoyed the advantage of an overwhelming majority of Democrats controlling Congress. In Obama’s case, even when he had a slight majority, he had the Blue Dogs in his own party working against him. In effect, he’s never had a real majority at all."More and better Democrats" is always a worthy goal.
You want more progressive government? Focus on getting more progressives elected to Congress.
