When Obama was president, it seems to me that the Afordable Care Act was took 2 years to enact and passed with Zero republican votes in the senate. Obama spent two years negotiating with conservative democrats.

When HRC was not elected, it was the progressives mucking things up again even though Bernie supporters turned out in much greater percentages to support HRC than HRC supporters voting for Obama.

When the DNC passed the rule that they would not support any candidate running against an incumbant Dem, Pelosi immediatly contradicted that policy by supporting Sen Kerry's opponent.

And now, the entire Biden ogenda is held up by two conservative senators.

It seems to me that progressives are the life blood and energ of the democratic party and its the corporate democrats that actually gum up the works.
