Pelosi's Herculean task

By Michael J.W. Stickings

According to the AP, Nancy Pelosi would use her first 100 hours as Speaker of the House to begin to "drain the swamp" left by the Republicans.

Well, sure, she has a plan. I like it and I wish her all the best.

But the corruption and injustice run deep. It would take a long time, and truly Herculean perseverance, to undo the damage inflicted on America over twelve long years of GOP rule.

But that doesn't mean Pelosi and the Democrats shouldn't try. Win first, then may the draining begin.

  • The Hercules analogy is apt. It will be more like cleaning the stables than draining a swamp.
