Let's suppose we get national health insurance. Would that constitute a difference? It would to all the people without health insurance. That would be much better than what we have now. Is that the socialist revolution? Of course, not. But that was never my expectation. The author of the article was disappointed because he was disillusioned. I am not. Obama will do what we make him do. Otherwise, he'll do what his Wall Street donors tell him to do. 
 A student asked Soen Nakagawa during a meditation retreat, "I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Soen replied, "Encourage others."

"Much" better? Really? How? 

One might say it's the diastole to the Bush 
systole. But frankly even that seems exaggerated. 
Re-branding, more like it. With a new logo 
and a few rough edges sanded down.
