I didn't read the American Promise closely enough when I talked about it this morning. It isn't just a list of promises. It outlines actual legislation that the Democrats, under Reid, will introduce in the Senate this session.

This is a very good sign. Democrats have been pretty much entirely reactive the last few years, under the theory that, since they didn't have the power to get their programs past, it wasn't worth spending "political capital" on lost causes. Reid seems to understand that you can actually gain political capital by fighting for something even if you don't win.

Give 'em hell Harry!
