  •  "Organizing For Action" (0+ / 0-)

    A lot of discussion today among the pundits about "Organizing For Action" (formerly the Organizing for America campaign organization) and what role it will play in advancing the President's agenda over the next 4 years and maybe beyond.  Exactly what role it will play and how effective it might be remains to be seen.

    However if it is to succeed, it must work with Democrats and the progressive organizations who worked to get the President re-elected and it must stay true to the progressive agenda we heard in today's speech in order keep the coalition of the formal Democratic Party, Progressives like us and OFA together.  If OFA goes for some middle-of-the-road approach they will lose the progressives that got the President elected and as a result will be doomed to fail.

    I hope we can all work together.
