    and let W push his idiotic lunacy onto this nation for another 2 years, then Obama didn't very curb much of this lunacy.  He did some good things, but things could have changed a lot.

      Face it we barely had a majority in the Senate with the 60 vote filibuster rules.  So, the President got done what could be done.

      a number of Dem Senators were far from dependable, depending upon the issue

      - Lieberman
      - Landrieu
      - Nelson of NE
      - Nelson of FL
      - Pryor

      just for starters
