12. That's What I'm Askin YOU
Edited on Thu Feb-05-09 10:42 AM by Beetwasher
That's the point of the post, to see how everyone measures the success or failure.

On edit: Sorry, you are asking MY personal measure! If it passes in pretty much it's current form (or even w/ MORE spending on infrastructure) and he can get it passed within the next week or two, I will consider it a success for O. And then obviously, if there is an actual effect on the economy, that will be an ever BIGGER success. I don't care if he gets a single Republican vote, I just care that it gets passed.
