Conservatives educate a progressive

Barack Obama gave a speech not too long ago on the importance of fatherhood and family. We commented on it here. The progressive Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne noticed it too, and speaks positively about it:

"Every social problem is made much, much worse by the abandonment of children by their fathers...But government simply cannot replace absent fathers. Government cannot do all the things that parents ought to structure matters."

Glad you're on board, E.J.!! Hopefully more liberals and progressives are getting on board, too. Remember: this is an issue that conservatives and neoconservatives had to work very hard to raise in this country. It took decades. We should be proud. And let's keep it going.
