56. I'm pretty sure Obama would agree with that.
"stop focusing on Obama and focus on building a movement"

In fact, that's one of the things I took out of his campaign. It kind of got lost in the media frenzy of the election, the economic crisis that hit the country, and the progressive mediasphere's tendency to view everything he does as a betrayal of some perfect ideal, rather than a step towards that ideal.
