  •  progressives aren't empowered (0+ / 0-)

    Because the Dems don't place value on the progressives in the same manner the GOP places value on the right wing nutcases.  
    The Dems have the attitude "where you going to go, who you going to vote for"?  The GOP's attitude is one of placating their base to keep them on board.  That's what happened in 2010.  The progressives didn't vote and the nutcases did.  You know the results.  
    Now the question is did the Dems learn anything as a result?  If they did, they won't make a bad deal.  If they didn't, they will give the farm away to make that bad deal for the sake of appearances.
