Bernstein is encouraged by the jobs report:
I suspect we're now pretty much at the point that Democrats will feel safe to start actually talking up the economy. They've been very hesitant to do so to date, for lots of good reasons: most Dems still want jobs legislation, and talking up the economy undermines the case for it; the overall unemployment situation has still been terrible, and Dems don't want to sound insensitive to hard times for their constituents; and, most important of all, the Democrats certainly don't want a "Mission Accomplished" moment. These reasons are now fading, as the economic situation improves.
