"My First 100 Days Start Today"
Whoever wins tomorrow, I want to hear more than an acceptance speech. I want to hear the President Elect explain that he recognizes the gravity of the problems our country faces, and that he's assembling a team that is going to be working hard over the next two months to put together policy proposals and draft legislation that can be quickly introduced, debated, and enacted after January 20. I want to hear that congressional leaders from both parties will be consulted and kept informed so that nobody can claim surprise and so that, if they wish, their parties can contribute to the effort or prepare their own proposals.
Let's stop G.W.'s slow train wreck, and get things back on track as quickly as possible.
