Keith Olbermann isn't sure that he's part of the "professional left," a term used in a moment of frustration by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. But he is sure that the Obama administration hasn't started many negotiations from that position, either.

Acknowledging that his frustration is understandable, Olbermann then assailed Gibbs for setting up the "professional left" rather than the "professional right," which he argued the administration has been catering to. That weak posture, Olbermann said, has made the White House seem like the "amateur left."
