How should progressives feel about Tea Party candidates edging out the GOP in the primaries?
Thrilled. The Tea Party is so radical, it means the Democrats will keep at least one house of Congress in the midterms.
Glad, but cautious. It will hurt Republican chances in the midterms, but Democrats still need to work to prevent major losses.
Apprehensive. The Tea Party resonates with a larger portion of the American electorate than most progressives think.
Indifferent. We need a stronger progressive movement that isn't always fixating on what the Right is doing.
