We're running out of words. One important use of  "progressive"
was to name non-communists who were willing to work with
communists. (This would have included but *not* been limited to
those disparaged by their enemies as "fellow-travellers.") As
Michael suggests, however, the word seems to be losing its
edge, being little better than a name for the more soulful type
of liberal.
