100. I sn extent
My own frustration I'd much larger and more longstanding than President Obama.

The whole framework and terms for the Democratic Party has been set in stone for too long by an elite bunch of so-called centrist politicians, strategists, corporate benefactors and lobbyists.

This group has set things up so that progressives and liberals have to fight this hierarchy almost as hard as they do against the GOP.

Instead of using his power to begin to looeen that centrist death grip, Obama has joined them -- and in the process marginalizing the progressive congressional democrats.

It was tragic during the health care debate to see a long- time liberal stalwart like Tom Harkin being thrown under the bus while assholes like Ben Nelson were kowtowed to.

And even worse, the whole House -- which has many solid liberal Dems tried to get more done, but were undermined by the Senate and President Obama.
