  •  You write as though the social safety net is the (0+ / 0-)

    be-all and end-all of liberalism/progressivism.  Corporatism, which is the core problem of the Democratic party, is hardly inconsistent with support of the social safety net.  In fact, such a combination is almost the definition of the modern centrist or center-right party: As PBO has said, his policies are basically those of the now extinct liberal Republicans.  As for your estimation of 25%, when that problematic proportion includes the President, the Majority Leader of the Senate, and the Minority Leader of the House, you're in trouble.
