    Its like he gives in every single time to the GOP.  He opposes it for a little while and then says "Well its okay...".  I was an early supporter of him, I volunteered extensively on the campaign, so i will always support him, its just that this flop is not uneeded  

    •  right! neither was the FISA flip-flop necessary: (3+ / 0-)

      so the pattern is really demonstrating that he's just not that progressive at all -- I really don't think he cares much about these issues.  Clinton's record on clean energy was better than Obama's in the Senate, but of course his supporters silenced that point during the primary.  So what does he really care about?  I'm sure he'll compromise on mountaintop mining, CAFE standards, etc. as well -- I just dont' think he cares that much about issues: mainly about getting elected.
