Not tremendously insightful, just as the "you can't be a social liberal and fiscal conservative" column. Here's a news flash: Yes, you can. There are many of us out here who believe in social justice but want to see the country in the black, and staying in the black. We want to see Clinton-like compromise with Congress, and please don't tell us it's all the GOP's fault. Perhaps a little less Kool-Aid, and a little more pragmatism would help us Democrats, before we committ the same sin of hubris the GOP sank itself with during the Bush years. That means we can't have all our progressive toys--we get that. I voted for the president but held my nose, as did many of us moderates, while doing it. I cringe to say it, but even Bush was more of a leader--terribly misguided though he may have been-- than Obama.
