2. I doubt that Beshear is considered to be a progressive

by voters that are to the left of where he stands on legislation like a statewide Fairness Ordinance to protect LGBT members in relation to employment and housing opportunities.

Furthermore, is Beshear a liberal or is he a progressive? Beshear does not appear to be making any effort to dismantle capitalism and the word "progressive" is almost ambiguous in meaning.

I admire Beshear's record as a governor and would vote for him without reservation, but I view him as holding down the fort in a hostile environment. His tenuous situation in Kentucky doesn't provide much opportunity to be a trend setting progressive which means that while he is in the middle of the pack, there won't be much media attention shown to him, especially when there are other Democrats at the national level who are available.
