Some of you may remember how often Cliff Lyon mentioned the word "progressive". That term was thrown around indiscriminately and used to describe his favorite people and things. A few of his progressive champions were: Dave Bailey- candidate for Provo mayor: Cliff Lyon identified him as the vanguard of the new movement of progressive Mormon Democrats. Dave Bailey, however, repeatedly insisted he was a conservative Republican. Southwest Carpenters Union: Cliff Lyon identified this union as the future of the progressive movement. This union endorsed President George W. Bush and nationally is in third place among unions for amount of money donated to Republicans. So what brought on this radical redefinition of 'progressive'? I think it's less a re- definition and more a mis- defenition. Perhaps it has something to do with Craig Axford, co- chair of the Utah Democratic Progressive Caucus and current Utah Democratic Party staffer who Cliff Lyon has been trying to get fired. A ham handed attempt to out progressive a progressive.
