A New Day


Digby:
I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress.
It's truly a new day in America, but the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has not forgotten the past. Nancy Pelosi of California chose to wear purple for a specific reason. It's the color of the suffragettes, the movement to give women the right to vote.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
This is an historic moment - for the Congress, and for the women of this country. It is a moment for which we have waited more than 200 years. Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal. For our daughters and granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling.
Liberals never lost faith of fairness, of freedom, of equality despite constant attacks by Conservatives. It has taken a long, very long time to get to this point. Let's take a moment and appalled this great progressive achievement.



Moment over. Tomorrow Republicans will start attacking Democratic Party and trying to roll back all of progressive achievments we hold dear. The stuggle continues.

I'm with you! Sounds great to me. Now let's cross our fingers and hope the Dems have the courage to speak the truth and act!
