"But let me just say, if tonight was a loss, I hope we have many more such "losses" in 2012."
He has got it right. Even if Dems keep marching like this, all will not be lost for them.
Meanwhile, Andrew has a proposal for President to follow on. It makes sense along with insisting Tax increase on rich. I would like President to go further and veto any proposal which does not address the longer term issues; meaning which is not $4 Trillion in size. While President fights, why not fight for what is best for Americans? How the rally cry of 'restore America's Credit Worthiness' cannot be the winning ticket? Americans are looking for Leadership which will make a decent down payment in restoring our financial worthiness. That is what America's next leader has to go for. This one is for President to lose.
