    We have supported many people who have disappointed us. Do you support a progressive agenda,  including women's rights and the rights  of gays and lesbians?

      Blue Virginia interview. Based on his responses there, I don't think there can be much doubt that he's a strong progressive. For instance, check out his answer to my question on environmental issues. Thanks.

      I can tell you that I strongly support legislation that reduces the amount of greenhouse gases, encourages and incentivizes the development of “green jobs” and retooling plants and factories to produce vehicles that run on alternative fuels, and mandates much higher CAFÉ standards. So if those goals could be accomplished through “a strong cap and trade bill” or a “revenue neutral carbon tax” I would have to seriously consider it. For me the bottom line is the result. For too long Congress and the Bush Administration allowed companies to defile our environment in the name of economic prosperity and look what happened. I do not and will not support off shore drilling and/or mountaintop removal coal mining.
