Pragmatism Isn't Always Bad

I am increasingly dismayed by what I'm reading on the progressive interweb, including the postings of good friends of mine. I dislike Joe Lieberman as much as the next lefty. And I'm not a huge fan of the Clintons, either. But what we need right now in this country is a way to get some serious work done without the usual gridlock. If that requires playing Abraham Lincoln for a time, I'm alright with that. I'd rather see the Obama Presidency build a foundation for long-term change than watch its potential evaporate in the heat of ideological acrimony.
