Whatever the truth of that, what is not contested is that the Congressional Progressive Caucus – the largest partisan bloc in the Congress when Mr. Obama was elected – believed that the new president was “one of us” according to many sources contacted for this article.

Big swinging caucus!?!
Me: I am hoping it will catch on.
