The majority of true progressives that I know woke up to Obama as the mouth piece of Wall Street years ago. The problem was during the primaries when the Democratic party started to muddy the waters about who was a Progressive and who wasn’t, with even Hillary Clinton daring to call herself one. Many regular democrats started to call themselves Progressives, but they really aren’t. Some even tried co-opting the term and relabeling actual progressives ‘Berners’, trying to make it a derogatory term.
Thank you for this.
