What that figure doesn't take into account is the increase in employment-ready population. When we do that, there was an effective job loss of 1.9 million during the 5+ years under the current administration.

- btower over at MLW posted excellent graphs in my crosspost over there. Here is one of those graphs that plots official unemployment rate and the so-called U6 unemployment rate. Please visit the link above for btower's further explanation:
- GreyHawk at dKos cited this diary Unemployment Deception in this regard.

Chris included Tom Daschle to his straw poll lineup this month, but he has once again found reasons to skip a rather popular, if not the most popular, potential candidate (you know who I am talking about, right :)).
So, here is a version of the poll making amends to the glaring omission.

Kos put his straw poll up. So its time for a couple more in our "Inclusive 2008 polls" series.
I request you to not promote these polls in any candidate specific blog or forum. Thanks.

According to California Yankee, Alito has 51 Yes votes. So far, only Ben Nelson has crossed over from our side of the aisle.
If the Dems maintain unity (sans Ben Nelson), they CAN still filibuster, and they must.
Below the fold, I will make a brief 4-point case against Alito. Before or after reading it, if you believe that Alito should be filibustered, please call and write your senators (please find links below).

It is critical to pass this extension before the Senate recesses for the holidays, and I'll leave it to you to imagine the political calculus, given that 16 provisions will expire on 12/31.
