24. How many progressives are in Obama's current cabinet? Seems fine to surround yourself

Harvard Grads so long as they are Liberal. I can't think of one truely progressive cabinet member off the top of my head. The entire Economic Cabinet is far from being progressive eg. The education Cabinet also not progressive.

But we the people have done our part, we have put eight more progressive candidates in Congress and will be working to get more elected each time there is an opening. We have also put three extra progressive candidates in the Senate.

It was Progressives once again who won this election for the President, a majority of them women.

We would now like to not be marginalized as we were throughout the first term.

Gen. Clark would be a wonderful addition to any cabinet. I hope he is being considered. Petraeaus was a Bush guy, Gates, and so many others. It did nothing to get Republicans to compromise one bit to give them these positions of power after we threw them out.

So there is no reason at all to continue that policy, we know it doesn't work.
