  •  Most progressive in the last 50 years: LBJ (0+ / 0-)

    Just consider what LBJ and the Democratic Party accomplished when he signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    After signing the Civil Rights Act, LBJ commented that what he had just done was going to cost the Democratic Party the political loss of the South for a generation. That took guts, and the willingness to do what was right, regardless of what it might cost both him in the short term and what it would cost the Democratic Party for two or more generations.

    There was also his great War on Poverty, and other progressive initiatives; but what hurt LBJ was the Vietnam War, and it hurt him so badly that he didn't run for a second term and I suspect it tormented him until the day he died.

    Carbon di-oxide in the atmosphere is now 400ppm. That is "Climate Cluster Chaos". (hat tip to JeffW for CCC)
