The following WEB quotes come from today's Truthout:

"....Democrats who grabbed control of Congress in last November's elections have their own political woes.

We need to seek out some leadership of the requisite courage, intelligence, goodwill and integrity. And it is uncertain how much more time America has.

Time being now the electorate's problem, we shouldn't waste any by searching through the current Republican and Democrat wannabees.
