Explain this to me

Intriguing line from Tyler Cowen, but I'm not sure I understand it:
I believe the Obama years will cause a crisis for progressivism roughly comparable to what the Bush years have brought upon libertarianism.
Hmmm, interesting. What do you suppose it means?

In other words, Obama is more of a centrist-liberal than a liberal. This tension will grate on dyed-in-the-wool liberals and leave them feeling sold out.

Much as free market types did under Bush.
