    for crumbs...  Disgusting.

    As Heathcliff Huxtable said to his recalcitrant son "I brought you into this world and I can take you out."  Which in our universe means votes.

    Democrats have to earn our votes. Stop with the manipulations. Take progressives on as full partners because THEY did the work to get Obama elected.  

    --Mr. President, you have to earn my vote every day. Not take it for granted. --

    •  You've misunderstood me... (0+ / 0-)

      ...I think the left is being played by the administration.  Obama always intended to nominate/appoint Warren to the position once it was created.  This is Kabuki.  The administration knows it has a problem with its left flank.  How does it ameliorate that problem?  By appearing to cave to the left wrt appointing Warren (something it always intended to do, but why not get a little political mileage out of it?).

    •  Yeah, only progressives should be partners cos (0+ / 0-)

      only preogressives  did the work to get Obama elected.

      open your mind or someone else will open it for you, but be careful you don't open it too much for you brain to fall out.
