Democrat progressives will, um, maybe make a small dent in the neolibel neocon Third Way corporation that is called the Democratic Party! Or not!!!! Progressives are window dressing. Well-meaning window dressing.
They did receive ASSURANCES from the Democratic Leadership, though, so it’s all good! No more votes, it is futile, IMO.

Doesn’t bode well for the newly elected “progressives”.

progressives, IMO. Chuck’n’Nancy will make very sure that any progressiveness is confined to campaign blather. And we peasants will be assured that someday, if we just keep giving them votes and money, the Democratic Party will become progressive. Bwahahahaha! Not that we will live long enough to see that, if it happens at all.

Buttttt Trump/Lesser evil/Scary Russia/Hills Feminatzis for pelosi’s grand victory. This just ensured that M4All will not happen until next 10 years and now they can start back again on posting how bad Trump is.
The analogy was give by Ron Placone “I’ll slap you everyday in the face but that’s reversable when evrr we want to” Sometime I think its well deserved for the Fall-In_line whine crowd.
Never expect different result by following the previous steps

I think we will see a lot of aspiring politicians cynically use Bernie style rhetoric mixed with identity politics in order to get votes only to vote for the same old, same old once elected. That seems to be what happened here with all these bold new progressives who were supposedly storming into Washington to demand change. I’m just surprised at how fast they folded.
