More than Left and Right

Check out "More than Left and Right," my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:
The authors of "The Transpartisan Matrix" explain the blunder of the healthcare reform proposals that contained an individual mandate to purchase health insurance. The mandate not only alienated the entire right, but also the "Freedom-left" or what I prefer to call liberals.

Indeed, the President's progressive agenda also alienates liberals in that it includes a continuation of George Bush's policies of domestic surveillance and a "surge" in the War on Afghanistan.

And let's be clear, such policies, though "anti-liberal," are quintessentially progressive.
