The ground game for the Democratic wing of the Democratic PartyCheck out Adele Stein's profile of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and its leaders, Teaching Democrats 'How to Fight': PCCC's Adam Green & Stephanie Taylor Alternet 02/03/2011. It's a look at an important piece of the "ground game" that Democrats who want to move the Party in a more progressive direction are running. Describing Adam Green, she writes:
Green's evolution from "being a Democratic hack to being more of a progressive movement person" originated in work he did for the party on the 2002 senatorial campaign of Tim Johnson in South Dakota, for which Green served as press secretary. It was there he saw the power of economic populism work for his candidate.Neoliberal economic policies and the warfare state are not the direction the United States needs to be going. And if either of the two major parties are going to exert real leadership to move in a more constructive direction, it will be the Democrats. It's efforts like that of the PCCC that are needed to get us there.
