The distribution of political statements

Digby:

“One of the problems for Democrats has been that there has not been an effective progressive voice pushing the edge of the envelope. Therefore, when they inevitably "go to the middle” as politicians often feel they must do, the middle become further and further right. It is my belief that one of the roles of the progressive movement is to keep pulling the politicians back to the left, which often means that we are not being publicly “supportive,” in order that we really do end up in the middle instead of farther to the right than the country actually is.“
