The Progressive States Network has a new report out evaluating the Presidential Candidates, Democratic and Republican, based on state initiatives in energy policy, health care reform, and working families. They conclude that while the states are well ahead of the federal government in progressive policies, the Presidential Candidates (some more than others) are at least trying to play catch-up in their priorities. It really is a mixed bag, in which Republicans generally lag behind but the Democrats don't excite me with the prospect of new and dramatic change at the policy level. Jump to the details, including candidate-by-candidate evaluations.
