Fighting Pragmatist vs. Kumbaya Progressive

Jon Henke says
"Fundamentally, what the netroots want is a Fighting Progressive. They want an unabashed liberal who will go toe to toe with the Republicans and punch them in the nose.

But what they have is a choice between a Fighting Pragmatist (Hillary Clinton) and a Kumbaya Progressive (Barack Obama).

No matter who wins, their victory represents a rejection of some core element of the Progressive and netroots movement."
I am not sure that Kumbaya is quite the right word here, but I like the idea.
