    Once again the inside the beltway Dems are playing on the turf of the GOP and the "serious adult" pundits.

    For once can we lead with a Democratic budget reflecting Democratic ideals? And at least promote the ideas of job growth and trying to help the average worker and families first?

    Then if we end up compromising to something that includes a discussion of chained CPI then at least we know we are in there fighting for what we believe in and getting what we can get. More importantly the ideas of a progressive Democratic party - ideas that not only are more fair but have actually been shown to work and not be destructive, will be getting more of a hearing in the general public.

    Blue is blue and must be that. But yellow is none the worse for it - Edith Sidebottom
