Andrew Sullivan, with video (01:40):
My own view is that 2009 has been an extraordinarily successful year for Obama. Since this is currently a minority view and will prompt a chorus of "In The Tank!", allow me to explain.Howie P.S.: This about as full-throated a celebration of Obama's first year as you're likely to see. If someone can spell out for me the message harmony with the cartoon ("Coyote catches Roadrunner") that Sullivan has posted with his words , I'm all ears!
Yes, we have. And yes, we still are the ones we've been waiting for - if we still care enough to swallow purism and pride and show up for the less emotionally satisfying grind of real, practical, incremental reform.
