I have to wonder what Ms. Klein seeks to achieve in her put down of the energy and enthusiasm of all segments of the population. I see very little substance in her high-schoolish attacks on the very people that unseated the backwards corporate-founded regimes that we have been floundering under for the past 8 plus years. Is it that negativity just cannot stop flowing from the brain, like the pruned grapevine, rooted and permanently attached to the ancient soil of the past? Yes, it is an easier task to sit and pontificate with small-hearted criticism against individuals who worked hard to achieve something than to accomplish the goal oneself, but if she had worked in the communities, side by side with all strata of people, she would have known the personal side of the effort was much deeper than the shallow criticism she offers.
Work is still happening to reach the goals of a better America, but it is real boots-on-the-ground work that will achieve change, not the empty bellowing of our educated wordsmiths.
