43. For sure!

Now's the time to latch on to the enthusiasm, nurture it, and reach out to understand why they're frustrated. Introduce them to the long game that the GOP played so very well, and make sure the BOBs know that it's partially up to them to run that long game back in the faces of the GOP and reclaim progressive values in the USA.

Up here in Canada, we've been experiencing a swing to the left, away from Harper and his restrictive and tightly controlled conservative cabinet, and I'd love to see the US follow the same arc.

Edit: Not that you're coming out from under a right-wing leader, just a right-wing Congress
