    While progressives didn't do enough to defeat Liarboy - he won, the only measure of success - we didn't just "sit around and worry about this and that until we conviced ourselves [etc]". Many of us mobilized to stop him, donated money, time and work, and made it harder for him to swindle his Connecticut constituents. And harder for the Party to protect him.

    Not enough, but a start. And certainly more than "sit around and worry and delude ourselves". Looking at the progress inspires us to do more. Looking at only the failure ensures we will continue to fail. We're "progressive", so if we're worthy of the name, progress alone is an inspiration, even when victory lies only in the future.
