We began with the largest national demonstration in this country's history, five million by some counts. This has been followed by many, many more street demonstrations and marches, most recently by scientists, not ordinarily known for such actions. Our first hundred days has seen thousands of political novices put their names forward for public office in local elections across the nation. Our first hundred days has seen District Judges putting on hold abominable presidential decrees. This hundred days has given us the creation of a new form of protest, the citizen Town Hall, in which previously oblivious member of the House of Representatives cower and cringe and abruptly flee in the face of voter outrage. This hundred days has seen an outpouring of grassroots political donations previously unheard of during non-election seasons. This hundred days has seen the ignominious defeat of cruel, heartless health care legislation promised unceasingly for seven years by a party that now controls all the branches of government.
It has not been a bad hundred days for us. May the next hundred, and the next hundred, and the next hundred after that be as good.
