Well - what about the demand 'Bring the troops home now!'?  Isn't that an
'illusory prospect' under current conditions as well?  Do you think that
someone should speak at ANSWER rallies (and other rallies with the same

on constitutional remedies etc.?  (BTW impeaching Bush would not be
structural change.)
