20. I think that a few successes lessen the cynicism
And I further believe, as the President stated yesterday, that the public will see how hyped the rhetoric against the legislation was and I think that will help generate confidence among members of the legislature, as well, which could spark more action. We've been made to believe for the past two terms that government is incapable of changing and responding responsibly to changes. I already see a new attitude and tone from this administration which may inspire a political renaissance in our party and beyond. I don't think we have anything to lose by remaining optimistic about our own ability to influence our Democratic legislators to action.
