21. Except for the passage of the Civil Rights laws and Medicare, I would agree..

but, actually, when I think of it, we have progressed a lot, especially women and the LBGT community and the election of an African American president. It's politically that we've suffered. After the enormously popular JFK was gone, and then MLK, and then RFK, the Democratic party started to move more to the right. Liberal bashing became the cause of the day. People forgot the hope and inspiration the Kennedy brothers and Dr. King gave us. Liberals were strong and proud with these popular voices. No one since has come close..

I think as a wonderful example of an American family, you can't top our current First Family. I couldn't be more proud to have the Obama's in the White House. President Obama isn't the fiery liberal JFK was, but he's the right man for the times. I honestly believe that if America survives the current political mess, we will owe it all to the man we elected twice for our President.
