    Also good is his initial statement that Obama is "not a Progressive, but an ally of Progressives." We can work with him to achieve many aspects of our agenda, and apply pressure to get him lean our way.

    But we shouldn't be astonished or feel betrayed if he doesn't speak or act like a Progressive straight down the line. FDR never aligned 100% with any single element of his party, but overall he moved the country strongly in a more liberal direction.
