'The true debate'

I have become very tired of Republicans who continue to couch the debate in this country as between "liberals" and "conservatives."

The election just over tried to send some messages to politicos of all stripes. The true debate is between progressives and regressives -- those who want to move forward, deal with problems and find solutions in consensus and those who want to move backward to a mythical past, spending their time calling people names and bashing someone who went out of office six years ago.

Americans want change from the bickering and infighting. Those who provide progress will prosper and those who stand in the way will be cast aside.
