And then there’s this: Today’s very revealing Roll Call story about how Dems are beginning to run from the “Occupy” movement after Obama and Pelosi publicly embraced it and expressed support for it, and, just as TIME magazine named “the protester” as its Person of the Year: http://www.rollcall.com/issues/57_74/Occupy_Liberals_Tensions-211034-1.html?ET=rollcall:e11672:80063663a:&st=email&pos=eam
