    but I share the same concerns about dilution of message.

    It is prolly a pipe dream on my part, but a joining of forces here could bring some legitimacy to both forces.  There is  some suspicion of the Van Jones effort being too establishment, thus, if they could join up with the earthier ANSWER (etc) forces and IF (huge IF) this combined effort could agree (heh) on a simple unified message, like economic justice for workers and the rest of the 98% who don't own it all (Where are the Jobs!)  , then I could see this as effective.

    A REALLY big demonstration, backed by Labors' footsoldiers, with working American faces and not just us DFHs.  It means everyone taking a deep breath, stepping back a moment, and realizing that we're all on the same team, and that the myriad of legitimate but conflicting interests all crying out for attention need to ALL unify behind a simple and essential message that the MSM is capable of translating.

    Like I said, a pipe dream.  I don't see this level of maturity out there, unfortunately.

    don't always believe what you think...
