    Progressives need to do better at controlling the primaries and hence the final political outcome.

    An examination of the census data in terms of searching for latent variables that turn out more progressive voters rather than simply democratic voters, would be far more helpful to reach the intended effect.  

    If one is going to look for progress its important not only to look at whether a candidate actually can be expected to promote progress but also at the rate at which such a direction once taken could lead to results.  Certainly conserva-dems are far better than republicans, but the trick is figuring out how to get change to occur at a faster pace.  One could die before one sees any progress at all otherwise.
