    he's showing that you can be a progressive and be strong.  Strength, or the perception of it, is THE key thing voters look for in a President.  The people for whom this position would make a difference in their vote won't likely vote for a Democrat anyway.  What he's done is take a position that is popular among democratic primary voters in the big blue states and put all the other candidates on the hot seat -- especially Hillary, who will no doubt be pressured by her own NY constituents to take a similar position.  I think this might actually be really smart primary politics, in addition to being the right position to take.

    After this, he's got my support.  Finally, a Democrat who might actually be willing and able to lead.  What a refreshing change.
