    decision. For a long time. But now looking in retrospect had it been passed it might have forced Roberts hand to strike the whole thing down since I think Roberts wants to strike a centrist tone as a chief justice and the current bill is very much a centrist bill.

      starting with the Cabinet appointments.  His Inaguration speech, however, along with this diary have made me more optimistic.

      one, be it a person or a nation, must turn to the center before turning to the left. We know this from polling data: a supporter of one side has to go through weak supporter to neutral to weak supporter of the other side to strong supporter. That's just, mentally how humans operate, even if they say nothing while they're going through the transition. They don't just flip like toggle switches.

      A collection of humans (society) will most likely exhibit the same behavior.
