Well things seemed to be moving in a Progressive direction for a while there, but the ghost of Floyd Olson has begged us to bring this blog back to remind everyone what the "FL" in "DFL" stands for.
For starters we'll link to this article from the Huffington Post by Arianna Huffington. It outlines what is going wrong with the Obama campaign.
And we'll also link to this election prediction site that shows as of right now....before all the weird shifting to the center starts to show up in the polls....that Progressive ideas put the Democrats way ahead.
Who is to blame for this shift to the center or return to the Whig party of the 1800's? I blame former South Dakota Sen. Thomas Daschle. He and his former campaign staff are key advisors to Obama. What was one of Daschle's key strategies to get elected? Not to put the word Democrat anywhere in his campaign and running from the center-right. Now it looks like he's rubbing off on Obama.
