Cronkite

July 19, 2009

It’s really too bad Walter Cronkite died just as drug reform was becoming a real possibility.  He was a trusted voice like no other in that movement.

I’m going to miss his fundraising letters (one of the few I ever actually open).

Let the fireworks begin

July 19, 2009

It’s been a quiet couple months in the domestic policy front, at least as far as people’s interest and perception.  Everyone’s tired of elections and bailouts.  MJ’s death, Iran’s crisis and Republican sex scandals took the spotlight.

But it’s about to get interesting as Obama comes off foreign travels, and goes on campaign mode for health reform.

And for those skeptic of reform passing, have they forgotten how the stimulus package was looking improvable, until he spent two weeks around the country pushing it to the front pages?  He will be naming and shaming the obstructionists and steamrolling the Blue Dogs.

To which I say, about time!
