You state in your KO interview that "The notion that Obama is going to abandon progressives is ludicrous".
Hasn't he already abandoned them?
(Well, sure, he sent Rahm to scream at them when they tried to defend progressives' interests against Rahm's pet "blue dogs". But I don't think that's quite what you meant.)
Not that I expect Kos to respond. It's been a good while since he was a commentator on my little YACCS comment system back in 2002. He's got television interviews to do. But one lives in hope.
