    The big problem Democrats have is activating the base. People thought after Obama's election we would have real progress. Now we are back to defending what we have against those who would take it away. We've done that for the last 30 years. It gets tiring after a while.

      where would we be now?  Excrutiatingly slow progress, as a snail's pace, is still progress.  Have you watched Madmen?  Every time I do I'm reminded of where we were fifty years ago.  Thanks to the efforts of progressive activists like us, our children have a more just and free society.  Worth defending?  I say yes.

      Got Social Security? Thank a Democrat!

      and we must always defend our rights. We think someone is going to wave a magic wand and all of our problems disappear. That is not how it works. We need people committed to changing things from the inside and the outside, and we need people who can help or push Obama to make that change.

      And lastly, we need political operatives who stand with the people and not with deal-makers and horse-traders, like Messieurs Emanuel, Axelrod, etc.
