Opposition as higher loyalty

Maybe it is time to start an Obama clock: how long will it take for progressive activists to start acting as a loyal opposition to a Democratic President?

Matt Stoller sets a bench mark:

It took three months for the liberal internet space to flip on the Democratic Congress in 2006; we'll see how long that process takes for President Obama.

These musing may seem premature before we vote the guy in, but I take it as a mark of a maturing activist sector to see us wondering this in late June, five months before the election.
