    "Something has to be done!"

    Politicians love "band-aid" solutions to problems. They know they'll fail 999 times out a 1000 (and the one time they work it's from sheer dumb luck not any real planning).

    But in the next election, regardless of the outcome, this official will trumpet "I led the effort to <blah> the <blah> so vote for me!"

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.
