Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Mar 4, 2020, 01:36 PM

 

Bernie doesn't own the term "progressive". Biden is a progressive. Obama is a progressive.

Warren is a progressive. Klobuchar and Buttigieg are progressives. I am a progressive.

Nebulous talk about free shit and supporting gun manufacturers doesn't make someone the standard-bearer for progressives. Sorry, that shit don't work for the majority of the Democratic Party, a party of progressives; a lesson that was made painfully obvious for some yesterday.

A progressive will be the nominee for our party and a progressive will kick Trump's ass in November. Go Joe!

5. Agreed. The insistence that he's the only true progressive is part of the problem.

 

The assertion that he's the "true" progressive, some kind of unique figure with a unique perspective who proposes ideas that no one has ever come up with before, is a significant part of the problem. It gives others the impression that the person making the assertion has no knowledge of the current political environment or political history.

championed by other people before him from Ted Kennedy to Obama.
