    We need independents like Bernie Sanders and like you and others.

    I think Markos is complaining about the Democratic Party's mistaken belief that Independent=Centrist and so chasing an ever-moving center for votes. If we stay on message--a message of economic populism and pragmatic liberalism--and keep to that message when elected, we can bring enough independents with us.

    "I was not born for myself alone, but for my neighbor as well as myself."--Richard Overton, leader of the Levellers, a17th C. movement for democracy and equality during the English Civil War.
