Former President Barack Obama encouraged progressive activists settling for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to agitate for left-leaning issues if he wins the White House — within reason.
Obama told Pod Save America on Wednesday it was “very important” that more liberal Democrats continue “to press their agenda,” countering pressure being asserted on the White House “from the other direction.”
“The caution I always have for progressives is making sure that, as you push for the most you could get, that at a certain point, you say, ‘All right. You know what? Let’s get this done, and then, let’s move on to fight another day,'” he said.
