I really wonder by what definition are you using the word 'progressive'? In the US today, it's mostly used as a more polite version of 'liberal' (another problematic word as it's migrated far from it's original definition.
I am quite looking forward to your series, but I don't see that Hubert Ingraham leads a 'progressive' government is we are using the current US definition. I believe that the vast majority of Bahamians are centrists and that as a result, the political parties are all clustered around the center in terms of ideology. The PLP might be a bit left of center and the FNM a bit right of center, but none of them are too far out there and the DNA (to the extent that it even has an ideology) seems to be going for the center as well. The Vangard proved that there is no interest in a leftist party in the Bahamas. There has never been a fascist party in the Bahamas, nor a libertarian one.
