On the bright side: It gets him out of the House and away from the Speakership for now. It puts him in the role of enforcer, which he was born to play. The only thing I worry about is if he was put there to keep the non-Blue Dog Dems in line instead of the GOP.

Just noticed your comment at Digby's site.

As Avedon pointed out a while back, FDR had real Communists to bounce off of. I will proudly work to pull Obama all the way to where Roosevelt was. He can thank me later. Being a cheerleader never appealed to me anyway.

The ironic thing is that Digby chose to ban me while she was writing this piece saying how the left needed to pull on the edge of things.

Perhaps she doesn't understand her own words?

IMO the worm will never turn. Sycophancy is just too ingrained among progressives.

I'm with eRobin on this one. Others are saying this and I agree that Rahm's a better "enforcer" for Obama than a loose cannonball in the House working his way up the leadership ranks.

Sadly, this means there is no chance for intelligent relations with Israel, but I wasn't holding my breath on that front.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
