If you think deficit-reduction is being driven by John Boehner or Harry Reid, think again. The biggest driver right now is Standard & Poor's.

All Obama has to say is “Hey Moodys!
Thom: We get you delayed here in Minneapolis on AM950. I just heard your response to a caller when you said "don't despair" and used the example of Elizabeth Stanton and the women's movement. They never lived to see the final fruits of their work, but it didn't stop them. I just finished doing an interview with Parker Palmer on his new book: Healing The Heart of Democray.
