“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Eninstein
“Forever in debt to your priceless advice.” — Kurt Cobain
It’s hangover day. Democratic politicians and pundits are waking up, feeling a familiar soreness in their head, slowly and methodically sitting up in their beds, letting their feet drop to the floor, working the aching muscles of their mouths then opening their eyes to see a bleary political landscape that yesterday, they owned.
It’s all advice and analysis this morning and most of it is debate about whether Obama should move to the center or not. Most of the people giving that advice are part of the professional pundit industry that is made up of Washington insiders; former administration officials, failed politicians and the same crappy journalists that Jon Stewart held a rally against.
Most of the people giving advice — including many of voices you’re reading right here on the Huffington Post — aren’t just too close to accurately see the problem that caused Obama’s slide in the polls and dismal midterms; they ARE the problem.
