  •  the problem with "leaders" (0+ / 0-)

    as described by Eugene V Debs (who always rejected the idea that he was a "leader" --- "If I lead you, that means I can mislead you, too."

    The progressive movement can't depend on any "leader" to get things done.  It can only depend on collective action by ALL of us. Obama is an ally.  He's not a god.  

    It remains to be seen whether he's even a particularly good ally.
