A progressive conservative in approach to problem solving. A person who is progressive by recombining ideas that worked in the past into new ideas. Progressives generally want to try things that didn't work in the past, because, well, it wasn't them trying it, and they are way cooler than the last people. (Or they don't know it failed last time.) Conservatives generally like trying things that worked before but aren't smart or cool enough to make cool or clueless people understand or like the old idea.
Obama is slippin! He talked all progressive, but he's like some dang progervative.
