1. I noticed that!

I used to be on DU from Dumbya's first term right through Obama's inauguration, but burned out. I also had a big problem with the way things were trending here in terms of your graphic above, but forgot all that after a while.

It's all coming back to me now.

And, yes, I did attempt to retrieve my old account since the email linked to that account has long been cancelled. I just had bad timing and tried to recover it during the DNC and nobody ever got back to my request. So, now I have a new acct. No big deal.

3. Welcome back Indpndnt!

It's the excitement about being able to fight each other that's what keeps us here, don't you think?

7. That, and the fun of conversing with others like us, on any topic, really.

I happened to burnout just as the discussions got very tense post-inauguration, so . I took a break.

And now I'm back. Feels great!

9. When you go to change it on your profile page, it gives you the option of downloading your pic.

Choose a small one and it'll work better. I just like mine too much, too big or not.

Mine full-size:

2. No kidding! We're all on the same side, people. We can strongly disagree

without name calling. So what if I'm an "Obama apologist" or if I'm a "concern troll"? I want the same things you do! Sheesh!

13. President Obama took the day off campaigning to celebrate his wedding anniversary

I love them both. As a couple, as parents, and as President and First Lady. They deserve a moment of private celebration.
