    Its about giving Obama the chance to do the right thing on his own, and sell it in a way he wants to sell it. Let's not give him additional political variables to deal with, on an issue he is already doing the right thing about. Why pick a fight for no reason!

    •  Still don't think that being ashamed of the Left (0+ / 0-)

      is the way to go here.

      If you're not left of center, you may not have noticed, but there's an inexorable message drilled into the Left here on dkos - shut up and don't rock the boat.

      Most on the left are were willing to do "the right thing" to get Obama elected. But with Republicans pretending that this is a right-center country, I don't think winking and pretending that's so is the way to move the window left.
