It hasn't been since the Great Depression and the heavy duty societal revolution, with FDR in the White House, that the Democratic Party and social liberalism have made such an impact on the United States.
With President Obama more popular than ever, and even a higher positive rating among south American leaders, he is at the right place at the right time.
There is still a humongous amount of work ahead, but the fact is that with needed health care reform, and Senator Arlene Specter, who changed parties this week, over to the Democratic aisle, the plot is unfolding for a major change in the way the average American pursues their health remedies.
This is not a "wink and a nod," presidency. Mr. Obama means what he says, and isn't just trying to look good to keep his popularity up, while not following through against special interests to help pressure needed health care legislation.
I look for another moderate to liberal Republican to switch sides this year........Republicans who are tired of social conservatives trying to run the entire party.
Once we actually start seeing such things as new bridges being built, school classrooms being retrofit-ed for solar, and more people at work, we may have another 1950s style economic comeback.
