  •  Correction. There are more important (0+ / 0-)

    battles ahead than this one.  This is what I've been trying to say all day.  I'm not into moral victories here, but that's me.  I'm into practical ones.  What good does it do the progressives, other than chest thumping, to have the President make a stand on an issue that is not as important to Americans right now as working on a job is?

    Because if the unemployment rate doesn't come down and economy doesn't measurably improve, Progressives are going to wish that we had a position to compromise on.

    We need to leave some egos at the door.
