I am having one of those days where some small problems seem intractable. I have a library book that seems to have gotten misfiled. It is iritating and problematic and not likely to be resolved quickly in a great way — although it might. Then I heard from several friends of old friends recently and yet seem not much closer to getting in touch with those friends with whom I have fallen out of touch. There are lots of little glitches, obstacles and delays in any life.
Political life is like that too. Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman is discussing joining the Republican filibuster to block passage of the Public Option version of the Healthcare Reform legislation. He is just another person who is making it hard for the Obama administration to pass its agenda.
