Obama was right of center, in some ways further right than Hillary. Progressives had real problems with the Obama administration because it wasn't progressive.

Yes, a lot of Americans have a problem with fairness and equality. The problem tends to arise when people other than white are involved.

“Progressives had real problems with the Obama administration” because after he took office, and particularly after the 2010 mid-terms when voters swept almost all Democrats out of office, Obama had to become more of a conservative than a liberal. But CANDIDATE Obama was a liberal progressive and his platform agenda was very popular with the country, especially progressives.

Listen, I don’t buy the central premise of the article you linked. I don’t think white people want to deny equal opportunity to people of color. I think fear of losing their own status was manipulated and taken advantage of by conservatives who really do want all the spoils for themselves.

Howard Schultz is thinking of running. Another successful businessman with zero political experience. Is that the new standard?
