    I for one believed him when he said he wasn't going to play the games of the 90s.  This is precisely why I fought so hard for him against Hillary.  Sure, the Clinton faction is 48% of the party-and they will get some of the spoils accordingly.  But the mindset-the tempo and culture of government will roll down hill.  From Barack to the American people.  We are in great hands.

      I know it's hard to reconcile having strong views about the way things should be AND realizing that there are large numbers of well meaning Americans who have very different views about the way things should be. How do we live together and come to decisions about direction? Will it be constant war with each "side" villifying the other and fighting dirty? That's what many of us are so sick of. I am willing to move more slowly and strategically in order to build a strong concensus for progressive steps rather than ram things through and provoke backlash. That's what Barack is so good at. I think that, with all our help, Barack can make progressive policies the new center.
