HECK, BY THEN...:

Hope Is Not Change: Patience is not a virtue—and good things don’t come to those who wait. (David Sirota, 12/28/09, The Progressive)


When you look honestly at what’s going on in our government right now, it’s not clear that “change” was anything more than a cynical campaign slogan on a colorful t-shirt.[...]

Forty years from now, America won’t remember the vote counts on specific bills (does anyone remember the vote count to pass Medicare?) and they won’t remember the name of the legislators or the senator or the governors in office. They will remember that we didn’t use this fleeting window of political opportunity.


...most will have forgotten this cipher of a president.
