39. No magic wands here.

But if you start from the assumption that you have a goal, you'll never get to that goal.

We keep seeing the Overton window move right. It's time to start moving it left again.

Sanders has already done more to reform the word 'socialism' with his run than anything since the McCarthy era, even though he's just a tiny bit more socialist than any Dem out there. Shift the public's view on single payer enough, and we might get a Congress that might at least do a public option, or a lower medicare enrollment age in the next 8 years. We certainly won't if we never even try for more.
