    ...the Clinton years were such a progressive paradise.

    While the Obama story isn't yet completely written, the evidence at this point is that Obama is going to prove to be about as progressive as Bill Clinton was.  Bill Clinton gave us "the era of big government is over", welfare reform, massive media consolidation enabled by the Telecom Act, cuts in the capital gains rate (which was 28% when he took office, 20% when he left), and the repeal of Glass-Stegall.

    Don't kid yourself that Hillary would have been any more progressive than either Obama or her husband.
