Raise High the Roofbeam, Bernie!
Anthony Resnick

“Chaitian”, a new phrase I like. I am troubled by how we don’t seem to be debating whether a particular policy makes sense (taxes or bank regulations, let’s say), but rather, whether is pragmatic or achievable right now, and if it isn’t, we shouldn’t pursue it. I think that such an approach always let’s one’s opponents set the terms of debate, and always ensures that we won’t have positive movement forward. It also betrays a lack of vision and fighting spirit, to change conditions on the ground; things I believe are vital for any president.
