Having said that, it's hard for me to care at the moment. In about half an hour I'll be leaving for Spain, where I've wanted to go since I was fifteen. It's hard to express how emotional I am at the prospect. I've dreamed pf walking the streets of Seville and breathing the same air as Ferdinand and Isabella. And now I will.

I agree about Obama. In fact, I was kind of disgusted by the whole BFD thing, because it could've been so much more with a little arm twisting. NOW they're saying he won't be helping those who voted No. Well, he already endorsed Blanche Lincoln without making her vote right.
Also, I've recently read that what we finally got was closer to a program Nixon had approved and one that Dole had put forward as an alternative to the Clintons. In essence, we got a bill Republicans would've been happy with if their party had not been hijacked by wingnuts.
So the worst of insurance company abuses are finally banned...tho way too much of this bill won't go into effect for way too long. Yet, strangely enough, I've gotten caught up in a bit of the optimism. But I think it's because there is now a glimmer of signs that the Dems may have finally started to understand how to play hardball. But we'll see.
