S/SW blog philosophy -

I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers.

A lifelong Democrat, my comments on Congress, the judiciary and the presidency are regular features.

My observations and commentary are on people and events in politics that affect the USA or the rest of the world, and stand for the interests of peace, security and justice.

Public option revival gains steam. Activists are cautiously enthusiastic, as they also join in the effort.

Many of us have deep regrets that this was not tried at first. Surely Dem vote counters should have seen that the cost of getting Conservadem Senators' votes would have been far too high in the eyes of an already skeptical public. The public option always enjoyed considerable support, ironically. Congress forgot to follow one of its simplest rules -- At least listen to your constituents.
