Krugman on the emerging progressive Democrats
See this article here. He's sees Hillary's campaign speeches, and the Democrats rejection of TPP fast track, as clear signs that the Dems are going back to their progressive, populist roots. Especially since those populist issues are garnering majority support in the polls. And beside, trying to win the undecided middle has proven there is no such thing, and that it's far better to take a firm stand on your values. Plus the fact that progressive policies like Obamacare are working helps. And that progressives base their policies on facts, not ideology, adds a much-needed reality factor into politics.
