The end result is the same, as are the difficult decisions faced by progressives: attempt to change the Democratic Party both from within and without, or attempt to destroy it and subvert the two-party system.
Regardless, attempting to peer into the President's soul is a fairly fruitless exercise either way. The only real question from here is: "So now what?" It's a loaded question, and there are no easy answers.
I would say (if my comments ever get past their moderation):
Sure, there's an easy answer: stop supporting a party that doesn't support our values and interests and invest our energies in something different.
We had an easy time saying that to "What's the Matter with Kansas?" Republicans. So, why not about us?
