    the Left will desert him in droves, and the Right will paint him as a failure.

    Any member of the House or Senate aligned with Obama and in a swing district or state will be at risk.

    If Obama keeps going the way he's been going, he will be a fucking disaster for the Dem party.

    Rahm seems determined to make sure this comes true.

    Jesus, how can such supposedly smart people be so fucking stupid.

      that they have right now, for a reason.  And that reason is NOT to enable the Republican rump with a few Democratic fellow-travelers who have sold out to corporate America, to block the Democratic agenda.  The reason is, that a huge majority of Americans, all over the country, are looking for real progress in rolling back the ill-advised crypto-conservative acquisition of America (and the world) for the benefit of the top tenth of a percent, and a return to the progressive roots of the real America.

      They're not looking for compromise - they're looking for progress.  And if that means crushing the obstructionists (metaphorically) under the juggernaut, so be it.
