No way is "Third Way" progressive.
Really? What a strange thing to say. Here are their areas of focus... which one/s do you disagree with? It all looks good to me! Everything they're pushing and advocating for sounds PERFECTLY REASONABLE.

Social Policy
We are forging common ground on contentious social issues, while fighting efforts to turn back the clock on social progress. What does that look like? We’ve helped unite faith communities and LGBT advocates around the shared value of commitment in marriage, and advocated for gun safety measures that protect responsible owners and do more to keep guns out of the wrong hands.


Climate and Energy
Our team designs and advocates for policies that will drive innovation and deployment of clean energy technologies, and deliver the emissions cuts we need to win the fight against climate change. The more low-carbon options we have to work with, the better our chances of success. That’s why we’re proud to be part of a large and growing community promoting evidence-based solutions to the climate challenge that include advanced nuclear and carbon capture technology, as well as renewables, hydropower, existing nuclear, energy storage, and efficiency.


Economy
Our team designs and advocates for expansive, forward-thinking solutions to address the challenges facing Americans seeking to earn a good life. We believe that an innovative, modernized government must work in tandem with a thriving and dynamic private sector to achieve sustained economic growth and broad prosperity. Technology and globalization are changing the nature of work in ways not seen in a century; we create and promote policy ideas so that those huge economic shifts can help people instead of hurt them.


Education
Higher education is now critical to securing a middle-class lifestyle, but our education system is still built around 20th century ideas. We’re focused on moving the K-12 and higher education debates toward policies that improve outcomes so that every student leaves our education system with more opportunities than before they started.


Health Care
Our team advances forward thinking policy ideas to ensure affordable, high-quality health care for everyone. We believe that defending and improving the Affordable Care Act is the key for expanding coverage. And we believe that our nation can keep health care costs down by improving the patient experience—when patients stay healthy, or get better quicker, they need less care.


National Security
Our team works to keep national security on the front burner for policymakers. We educate Members of Congress on emerging threats, developing and promoting policy ideas to make America strong and safe, and conducting narrative and messaging research to help progressives be tough and smart on national security.


Politics
We bring a unique expertise on how to appeal to voters in some of the most purple parts of the country. Our team uses in-depth public opinion research and original analysis to unite progressives around a broad path to power at all levels of government and debunk outdated electoral theories. Our team is undertaking a major project to overhaul our electoral system in ways that radically increase participation and make our system more representative of the people it is supposed to serve.
