    Adolph Reed, Jr. cannot, does not or will not see the bigger picture regarding liberals, saying that Democrats have already surrendered in their fight for progressive causes. Reed's opinion that liberals are only concerned about short-term achievements, such as winning elections, and that they've essentially abandoned their long-term progressive goals of "transforming" society for the better, is rather shortsighted and erroneous. Liberals must first concentrate on mundane things like winning elections in the short-term before they can successfully attain their lofty goals for the long-term changes that will benefit American society. The first step must come before the other one can be achieved. It's the nature of the beast.
