    What the hell is this supposed to mean?

    I wonder though where does that leave the blogs? Miss Laura? MB? Kos? Have you all, admins and community, thought about where this blog will go next, whether its goals will change now with a Democratic President and majorities?

    Does the task of electing more and better Democrats somehow come to an end? Does the task of constantly strengthening and renewing the Democratic Party, from the precinct level up, somehow go away?

    Does the task of building communities, whether geographical, virtual, or by affinity, just go away?

    Does the task of making our activism relevant to our neighbors end?

    I believe the answer to all these questions is no.

    And I'm sorry if this pisses some people off, but too bad. I also believe that the Democratic Party local, county, and state organizations -- and NOT groups like DFA, MoveOn, Progressive Majority, etc., etc. -- are the best vehicle we have for effecting positive political, social, and economic change in this country. We, and not these other groups, put up the candidates.

    As long as that is the case, this blog isn't going anywhere, nor should it. Organized Democratic Parties, right down to the local level, and rank and file union organizing are still the keys to moving forward.

    This blog and others have been, and should remain, a huge help toward that end.
