31. It's important to be AWARE of the game,

so as to prevent it from being used again. It's important to make the games explicit, so they can't get away with them.

I am less gloomy now than at any time in recent history, because we had a landslide at the voting booths. We have tremendous opportunity all of a sudden, within our grasp, for REAL change...not just more of the same.

But what's in the news today? Talk of "fiscal cliffs" and compromise, reducing our Senate majority through appointment, moving Michelle Rhee to education, keeping Warren off banking...And the numbers being thrown around in the news re: possible budget deals sound just like they did before this landslide. In other words, we are not getting many...perhaps any...serious signals that the game has changed.

The game should have changed as a result of this election. We hold the cards now. We have to keep letting Democrats know that we are watching them and expect better this time.
