1. We need Unity, certainly. We need Leadership more, at present.

If President Obama had used the "Bully Pulpit" in January 2009 to explain to the American people why we need to get out of wars without end, why traitors, warmongers and banksters should be in jail, why we need Universal Health Insurance, why the nation needs massive government spending, why schools need more resources not less, why taxes on the rich must be increased; Congress would be flooded by popular support for the president and Congress would go along.

If Congress didn't support the president, it'd be a good bet the ringleaders and a whole bunch of their toadies would be out of work, if not in jail cough Phil Gramm.

All the president had to do was ask. Now, it looks like we'll never know.

As for the next president, I want someone more interested in reforming the Party and retooling the country. Wall Street and those fortunate enough to enjoy a piece of the action are doing well enough.
