Change we can believe in?
This is the point. No-one else seems quite to get it. Obama's infrastructure plans - if they come off - are of Eisenhower proportions (he built the roads - well the big ones). They entail a new mindset that builds America and doesn't object to paying for it. It's a mindset that could lead to change American children can believe in. I am not suggesting that the jobs side of infrastructure improvement is unimportant - plainly it is hugely important. But the long term benefits could re-shape the nation.
