Two new parties must be formed – libertarian to give current republicans an option and progressive to give democrats an option. This is where grassroots organizing needs to be for the next 4 years. i am soooo disappointed in obama’s pick for chief of staff, rahm emanuel. Based on his history, it seems that his main job as gatekeeper to obama will be keeping progressives -like Kucinich – from having their voices heard.
Baker = classic concern troll. What’s tragic is that there’s a good chance that the new administration will listen to his siren song of “fear the left, fear the left!” If the Democratic Party listens to such trolling – and indications are that it will – then progressives in America need to start their own party.
