New York Times columnist Matt Bai is floating the idea that President Obama's deal with Republicans to extend the Bush tax cuts has progressive Democrats so angry that they think Obama deserves a primary challenger. But looking at the evidence "bubbling up on liberal blogs and e-mail lists," and, sure, a few op-eds in the Washington Post and Huffington Post, Bai seems to think it's not that progressives want a challenger to win and go on to the general election so much as they want to scare the president straight to the left.
