A Progressive that belongs to the Democratic Party is just another run of the mill filthy democrat co-opting the "progressive" label for marketing purposes. The fact that PCCC lets themselves interviewed by the Ed Schultz show proves they're fake progressives.

So is it your position, Elliot, that the only path to becoming a TRUE Progressive is to ABANDON the Democratic Party and waste their vote, or their candidacy, by running exclusively on, or voting exclusively for, some as-yet-unformed 3rd party? To suck votes away from Obama, and give the Rethuglicans a better chance to appoint a SIXTH Conservative judge to the Supreme Court?

Thanx, but no thanx - you are welcome to tilt at whatever windmill you like, but I consider myself a Progressive, and I'm gonna vote PURE BLUE in 2012!

I'm not happy with what President Obama "hasn't" done. I wish there were some amazing 3rd party candidate that "really" understands all we (the 99%) want to change. I will keep hoping. In the mean time I too will vote all blue in 2012 in the hopes that the senate and the house can both be Democratically controlled and the President will wake up and realize he can now push through much more aggressive laws that get us (the 99%) closer to where we should be.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
