So is Obama doing his "catch me if you can” thing again by already setting an anti progressive tone to his presidency?


Many of us have a high regard for the Clintons. Indeed, many of us feel Hillary Clinton would be a great appointee to the Supreme Court if given a chance.  But, there is simply no question that they are middle, middle, and nothing but middle (just like the DLC).  And please NEVER forget that what the country now calls the "center" (thanks to the ironically combined efforts of Clinton and Bush!) is now about three standard deviations to the right of "used" to be” the political center eight years ago.


This is why the time has come to trash that continuum, or at least stand up and be counted as a passionate and VERY AGGRESSIVE liberal/progressive.


My God, it's already turning to 2006 again and the DLC and fascist Bush Republicans are doing another "slight of hand" and writing off American progressives and liberals (Obama's true base which is also now the "base of America").


What do you think?  Will Obama appoint a patriotic progressive to ANY office?  Or will progressive- contemptuous centrists keep “influencing” the rest of his decisions?


But back to the question of questions.  Even if Obama has already sold much (most) of his soul to the DLC, will he AT LEAST turn his back on that (dem = pug = elites) world and rise to the challenge of defending the Earth? 


Surly our one and only planet deserves an EPA head who will be a Sir Galahad for our mortally wounded planet.


So President Elect Obama, may I respectfully suggest that when you DO fill this ultimately important post, you do your thinking (and praying?) as far away from those "centrists" who have historically treated Mother Nature as a slut, not a lover.
