    getting in the way--probably more like "the people who sign his paychecks" are getting in the way, and doing everything they can to limit success here.

    If Health Insurance Reform can wait until 2015, then so can any changes to Social Security.

    •  He just had Brian Williams on his radio show (0+ / 0-)

      and gushed all over him, a corporate flack, yet ignores Rhodes, who toils daily for progressives. I think there's some ego at work there. And I like Ed and went to see him twice in my city. Something he said the other day put me off though. When a caller asked him if he thought an "out" nonbeliever could get elected president, Ed went silent for a few seconds and then said, "Well, we're all born sinners."

      •  You don't know that (0+ / 0-)

        for all you know, MSNBC management has dictated what their anchors can and cannot do, with respect to these rallies.

        Because, yes, corporate management can do that, and they're protected by employment law now (see Akre/Wilson vs New World Communications).

        So if Schultz (or Olbermann, or Maddow, or Tweety, or any other MSNBC flack) wants to stay employed, he'll do what he's told.

        If Health Insurance Reform can wait until 2015, then so can any changes to Social Security.
