Being A Realist Means

Waking up every day to find the cupboard containing the range of choices available to you that encompass  both your idealism and the ugly facts of the real world to be nearly bare.

Being a idealist means waking up the next day and the next and the next and trying again and again and again.

But in the realm of politics, there's no real world. That's why politics is so frustrating, it's very hard to get to the truth.

I understand that people are bitching and regretting going for Obama and choice members of the Dem party, but that early anger is good, next primary there's a very little tiny winy chance the next person might address these problem and the fake promises and compromises.

We still live in a world where people don't know why Reagan, Bush, and Cheney should be facing charges, that voter suppression is a republican tactic, and that every single republican issue has a liberal answer.
