  •  Centrism is the Third Way - (0+ / 0-)

    it's hovering to the left of the Republicans, wherever they are...as a political calculus. Triangulation, pragmatism. It reduces the number of things worth getting worked up about considerably. And yes, as passionately as I campaigned for the President in '08 and '12, he's clearly a centrist. And this is why we're faced with the possibility of getting the tax increase on the rich for which we fought, but only at the cost of "reforming" the safety net, to which few of us would have agreed, let alone fought for...

    Perhaps TheAction will change all that. We'll see.

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries.

    •  Centrism is not pragmatism, nor vice-versa. (0+ / 0-)

      FDR was pragmatic.  Bill Clinton was centrist.  Obama is pragmatic.
