    Very small number of comments.

    Perspective, is one word that encapsulates what is needed in order to generate more political traction.

    Nationally, the present discussion only gained real influence pretty recently, and it ought to be front and center that this medium represents the only capability for a truly national participatory discussion about everything that ought to be discussed if there really is to be such a thing as a progressive movement.

    The whole discussion moves very slowly, but election cycle to election cycle, there is knowledge gained by the entire national community on a variety of fronts and this continues to increase the effect progressives have.

    Participation in all its dimensions have to become a more dominant ethic, though.  As the diarist describes, there is a big difference between the sort of thing that crowd events are and the work that really is at the heart of making political progress.  

    That work, from election to election, combined with determination will ultimately succeed.  

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
