47. He says the Democrats are centrist; he critcises the AE "centrists" with quotes

He's not saying he's an 'uber liberal'. He is slagging off Americans Elect for claiming they are "centrist", but for then ignoring that Democrats like Obama, and, I'd say, Clinton, are already centrists, and then claiming that a new party or movement is needed for centrists (and for which the person suspected of being the preferred candidate of the money-backers was an enthusiastic privatiser of Social Security, which doesn't look centrist at all).

Don't assume that, because Krugman calls Democrats centrist, he means it as an insult, or that he must therefore be 'uber liberal'.
