What will it take for President Obama to get resounding progressive support? Mike Lux, the founder of Progressive Strategies, speaks to this issue in his article, Fighting for Regular Folks.
If progressives, and regular working Americans, see Obama pick a side- our side- and really fight for it, no matter what happens over the next 3 years, we will stick with him and fight for him, too.Right now, President Obama needs to pick the side of a public option in healthcare and he needs to "really fight for it." He will then see progressives as well as "regular working Americans" joining him in his support of a public option.
I bet his ratings will go up too!
