Your headline for today

Right here:

10 Commandments to Revive Progressives After the November Defeat

It's by Rabbi Michael Lerner whom I've long admired.

Here's just one sentence that seems to encapsulate his point and with which I heartily agree:

Had Obama embraced and fought for a progressive agenda, even if he had passed none of it, he would have entered the 2010 elections as the champion of the huge idealism of the American people that was elicited in 2008 and which would have led the Democrats to an electoral sweep in 2010.

Some of us tried to send that message to the President. I wonder what stopped him from listening.
