44. Some people might call him a sell out for holding back - But - Cenk is a responsible progressive

Obviously any sensible progressive is going to have some major problems with Obama and the Democratic Party professional class in general - but Cenk also recognized that during the election one needs to not muddy the waters and risk contributing to electing the most reactionary political party in the history of modern American - The Fox News led Republicans - however pathetic the Democrats might be. Thus the pragmatic thing to do is to hold fire during the period right around election time and save the progressive perspective on the President and the Democratic Party in general until after the votes are counted. Cenk held fire and that was in my personal opinion the right thing to do even if on one level it can be regarded as being less than intellectually honest, forthcoming and even to some extent selling out. I still think he did the right thing by holding fire for as long as he did. Although some may not agree with me on that.
