Saturday Night Open Thread With The Driftglass And Bluegal Podcast: Can Obama Be A Transformative President?

Time for your weekly edition of the Driftglass and Blue Gal podcast. It's been a busy weekend for me with my mom's birthday, a family wedding the next day and Mothers' Day after that, but I'll happily make some time to enjoy the banter here and share it with all of you. Happy Mother's Day ahead of time to all of our C&L moms who visit and contribute.

Mentioned in this admittedly name-dropping podcast are Tengrain from Mock, Paper Scissors, comedian Matt Filipowicz, author Rick Perlstein (FaceBook link), and Keith Olbermann's Twitter account.

You can listen to past editions here and at, and the podcast is also available on i-Tunes. If you enjoy these as much as I do, donations are greatly appreciated. Please consider throwing five bucks in the hat.
