Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Progressive's True Fight

For Democrats who are upset with the coronation of Hillary Clinton...sorry.  She's going to be the nominee.  Kudos to Sanders and O'Malley for raising important issues, but HRC will be the nominee.

Progressives should stop obsessing over an Elizabeth Warren candidacy that isn't going to happen and start opposing Chuck Schumer as Senate Majority Leader.

Harry Reid could be an infuriating ally during some of the early days of the Obama Administration, but he more or less "got it".

Schumer is a slightly less odious version of Joe Lieberman.  He's hawkish in the Middle East and way too close to Wall Street.  Defeating him - either Dick Durbin or, yes, Elizabeth Warren would make nice alternatives - should the rallying cry of Progressive Democrats for the next two years.
