    I don't think I've said that anywhere.

    I demand prosecutions for torture.

      The reason I asked is to make the point that we might have places where we don't agree with the new president, but that is in no way the same as being ready to right him off.

      There seems to be a large "all or nothing" view from the purity folks. I don't think that models their actual reality, but I wanted to ask someone that said they were a purist.

      Thanks for the answer.

      Getting Dems together and keeping them that way is like trying to herd cats, hopped up on crank, through LA, during an earthquake, in the rain. -6.25, -6.10

        and I've commented when his picks are encouraging (like Barnes and Napolitano specifically). However, I also intend to be very loud when I don't agree with him.

        I don't really think i'm a purist. I just get called that around here frequently. If I was a purist I wouldn't have even voted for Obama, much less worked hard for him.

          on opposite sides of the issues, I don't see you as a purist either. You were the only one presenting as one, so I asked my question of you. It was not that I was seeking you out.

          As for being loud, do it. I recommend being aggressive and assertive without going over the top, but that is just my take on how to get heard. Whatever you do, do not be shouted down, it is too costly to our democracy to silence any voice.
