39. Yah know, you're still misquoting Rahm and Gibbs. I'm one
of the sensible liberals, and my philosophy is far, far to the left of US politics. I also realize that what I'd like to see will never happen in this country, so I'm practical in my expectations. I know for certain, though, that the Republicans will not advance the country in a progressive direction, while Democrats will make some progress. That is what informs my politics, even though my political philosophy is impractically to the left.

I'm about tangible results, even if they are small steps. We've had those already with this administration. I guarantee that if Republicans retake the Congress, the small steps will end abruptly. We will go into gridlock mode for the next six years. You want a recession to remember? Put the country into gridlock and you'll get it and damn quickly.
