A different perspective

I do not generally follow American politics like a crazy person, but I do find it interesting, probably due to my love of the West Wing. So, of course, I followed the recent mid term elections in the US. There have been many articles since about the failings of Obama and the democrats, but I quite enjoyed this article on Slate that gave the opposite opinion. Health care is being blamed for the beating the democrats took in the election. But as the author of this article says ‘We’ve become so obsessed with who wins or loses in politics that we’ve forgotten what the winning and losing are about’. That Obama managed to bring in a health care plan where others have failed for decades is an enormous win in itself. What’s the point of winning if you can’t make any great change when you do?
