Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

Heart Warming (Part Deux)

If you are a conservative or libertarian read and gloat.

From today's USA Today:

Bush is banking on "political capital" from the election to push through one of the most ambitious legislative agendas since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society.

The president "knows by spending it and achieving results, he'll gain more capital," said David Hobbs, the departing White House legislative affairs director. "There's never a better time than now, shortly after his election. He's come out of the chute on a wide range of fronts."

The president highlighted his agenda at an economic summit here last week. He'll have a year to implement his program before the 2006 election season begins. His top priorities: creating private accounts in Social Security, simplifying the tax code and reining in corporate and medical lawsuits.

All have been on conservative wish lists for years.
Then take a deep breath and remember we deserve to go back to the desert for 40 years if we don't deliver:

"The Republican Party will quickly lose our majority if we don't follow through on the promise of major structural reform," DeMint says. "Now we have the numbers to at least make an attempt."
Therein lies a cautionary tale for Congressman Kennedy.
