The President's inauguration speech was a catharsis for America ... and reveals upon reflection that what is considered progressive is NO LONGER left of center.
The right has moved much further right to the edge of the abyss while this President has tactfully nudged his party center right of center.
WE all know that the center left and right is where WE ALL make the most progress and that occasionally but rarely exciting new ideas can come from the fringes of human thought but that is about it ... and also we understand better today that good ideas are not restricted to right or left!
When our President endorses a two party system he assumes normalcy ... rather than the lunacy of the fringe right we see now.
OUR President does not want too nor does he need to destroy the Republican party ... they are doing a more than adequate job of destroying themselves by distancing themselves ideologically from the majority of Americans.
