What should Progressives do next?
Three well informed — and I think reasonable — Progressives discuss the question here.
It turns out the three find themselves in solid agreement that Obama has abandoned Progressives, and that Progressives should therefore abandon Obama. My guess is they are not alone in their thinking, but represent the thoughts and feelings of many Progressives these days.
Progressives seem to be close to taking on Obama and the Democratic Party in somewhat the same way that the Tea Party took on the Republican Party. But “close” doesn’t count for much. The question is, will they?
