There is a lot the administration could have accomplished that the progressive base would have praised. Sometimes this would have entailed doing something, like DADT, that was expected and promised. Other times, this would have entailed taking stronger action in response to events, as with health care reform and job creation. So there is handwringing, excuses offered, and worse, on whose fault it is that liberals have not been overjoyed with the administration.

So what can Obama really do?
