"Progressives today should hold him up as a hero." Here is the drift in Left and Right ideals. The revolution was a Leftist movement with the Righist Tories/loyalists supporting the status quo, I.E. monarchy. Hamilton and Edmund Burke were spokesmen for the Right. Jefferson, Paine and Madison spokesmen for the Left. Things change.
