Some Good News before Christmas

Passage of Don't Ask Don't Tell Repeal, the 9/11 First Responder's Health Care Bill, and now ratification of NEW START.

Much as I thought the so-called Tax Cut Deal was a cave-in and gave too much to the Republicans, you have to admit the Democratic Leadership and the President have been on a roll in the last few days of the Lame Duck.

The unfortunately compromised ruling of the FCC on Net Neutrality, the presidential signing of an illegal order on indefinite detention, the stonewalling of the Party of No on the Omnibus Spending Bill, and the failure of the DREAM Act are negatives, but at least there's some good news.
