58. I thought "centrist" was the meme du jour. Now the centrists are co-opting "progressive"?
what's next, he's a "Marxist"?

give me a friggin break. No progressive ever defended making "suspected" "terrorists" legal nonentities stripped of even their basic human rights. No true progressive was NOT a fierce advocate of a single-payer health care plan, or at least a diehard advocate of a "public option." He is whatever he needs to be at the moment, whatever is politically expedient. He's not a conservative, centrist, or progressive, but a chameleon. And there are no truly progressive people in his cabinet, either.
