5. Historical Context- he will be remembered fondly.


If there wasn't so much obstruction, he could be greater. At the end of the day he's a community leader. He's a politician: he ain't God and the power wasn't invested solely upon one branch of power.

And I don't believe that we won't or can't go forward with better reps. I can only hope the next generation - the one's who get it and worked so hard to make calls and get involved run their own selves and do what it takes to make congress work!

I know the Senate is normally the immovable body, but we can have some hope.

And for God's sake, if we are going to have 2 parties, we need a sane party to counter offer and actually negotiate. We can't have such a moderate Dem party... The Dems are supposed to be liberal and want to fund every social adventure. The conservatives are supposed to watch the budget and make valid points about how the networks are working. They aren't supposed to be guided thru life with a lobbyist telling them what to do or the super wealthy buying their way out of paying their fair share. The money structure is way too corrupting (even worse sometimes at the state level where money and name recognition are nil).
