I'm a progressive who thinks Cheney, Romney and Bush are true patriots

Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third-ranking Republican in the House, Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, and President George W.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  Whomever wrote Biden’s speech gets an A. It was essentially a laundry list of progressive ideas — but it didn’t feel like a laundry list because it included lots of morally uplifting transitions and personal connections, despite a handful of clichés about "America can do anything if we work together."
