1. progressives should support Obama

we should support any centrist president. Bill Clinton was a centrist president and he certainly has a "list" of accomplishments. If Joe Lieberman were president, he would have a substantial "list" of accomplishments. I would even go so far as to say we should support Republican presidents, and that they too accomplish some good things.

But progressives should not believe centrism is the best we can do, that presidents like Obama are the most progressive we can hope for. We keep getting told that. I don't know if this book is telling us that, but if it is, then it's wrong.
