Rare Pre-Inaugural Call to Hasten Stimulus Bill

Today President -elect Barack Obama made a plea to Congress  to pass a jobs-creation and stimulus bill  -  and a costly one it is  -   to ward off  a national catastrophe "of historic proportions".  Here again Obama shows the "just do it"  Generation X stance which Howe and Strauss said would mark the predicted Fourth Turning President,  who would appear in 2004-08,  and whose ascent  would signal a resurgance of  the disenfranchised party (obviously, the Democratic one).  I for one find this all very comforting,  in that since 1998 I have placed  great stock in the book which the two historians co-authored.
