Great Quote

"The world is too small, our wisdom too limited, our time here too short,  to waste any more of it in winning fleeting victories at other people's expense. We have to now find a way to triumph together."

Bill Clinton

This great quote, found on an art site today, was in someone's signature block.  We need a lot more of this type of thinking.

One Year Ago

OK - I voted for Barack Obama because I believed he could get something done, could get us out of this terrible, horrible mess brought to these United States by noneother than Shrub, Cheney and the Bushies.  I STILL believe it.

What a difference a year makes.  Yes - there has been progress.  One year ago we were on the verge of the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression.  Check out the stock market for Pete's sake.  There's been great progress on a lot of things.  But who would know? 

Come on Dems - be proud of what you've done.  Be proud of CHIP, be proud of the Lily Ledbetter Act, be proud of Cash for Clunkers, be proud of the 1st time homeowner tax credit and a whole lot more!
