An inside-outside approach for progressives toward the Democratic Party

This interview with Jeff Cohen, founder of the liberal media watch group FAIR, is an example of the kind of discussions that will have to take place for years to come if the Democratic Party is going to be re-made into a New Deal Democratic Party that supports Social Security and Medicare, not just in campaign rhetoric but in every budget and every debt ceiling negotiation and in every other political "hostage-taking" situation with the Republicans.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
