17. You can have all the leadership in the world, and the blue dogs and republicans would have nothing
to do with it

The only way to accomplish the change you are saying is to start winning elections with progressives, especially in the purple and red states

That will take a long time

As for your argument involving the financial sector, they had to be bailed out, or it would have been far worse. That we are able to discuss that, shows that a complete collapse was averted. However, the problem was, not that they were bailed out, but that they weren't broken up, the regulation taken out during the eighties wasn't put back in, and there was no accountability on what the funds used to bail them out would be used for

Anyway, that is my view
