Two events last week involving elements of the Democratic Party who call themselves the "true progressives" show a danger they represent to the progressive change they say they want to effect. Together they offer President Barack Obama an opportunity for a "Sister Souljah moment" - perhaps to save the Democratic Party majority in both houses of Congress, as well as his progressive agenda in the last two years of his administration.
The last two years of Obama's administration, eh? I guess Davis has given up on the 2012 elections, since a victory in that election would mean the Obama administration has another six years (and seven months) to go.
Democrats and President Obama should definitely follow the electoral advice of someone who has written off Obama's re-election chances in 2012. Anyone who offers you advice, and who thinks you are going to lose even if you follow that advice, must definitely be acting in good faith. As such, Obama and Dems should seize upon this can't-miss "opportunity."
