… for a Senate vote on the Dodd Financial Reform bill, after a whole lot of debate over a whole slew of amendments from Republicans and Democrats and Independents. Some won and were added. Some lost and were discarded by a shifting majority vote. Everybody had their say. And the final product — good, bad or indifferent — is an amalgam of Democratic ideas, Republican ideas and some cross-breed notions.

So, I’m going to say I like it — and I have not read even a synopsis of all it would do or attempt to do to prevent another meltdown in the financial world. And as any even casual reader here can attest, I view such prevention as the most important task before this Congress.

But these people took a vitally important thing, hammered it out thoughtfully and are about to vote on a bipartisan bill that’s with a little “b.”

And man that has been a loooooong time coming. We should applaud that. We really should.
