40. So make him change.
FDR: "I agree with you, I want to do it, now make me do it."

Elect Democrats to Congress that are to the left of Obama. That will drive his policies leftward. And in your particular case, you need to make Scott Brown lose sleep at night.

Meanwhile, you need to elect better Democrats to local and state office, because they become the next generation of Congresspeople.

Look, we've had 30 years of rampant corporatism running our government. One election can not fix that, no matter how great an orator is elected President. That election is just one battle. This will be a long war.

But liberalism always wins in the end. Yes, there are setbacks. They can even be decades-long setbacks. And the rate of change can be extremely frustrating. But stopping the fight just means longer setbacks.
