From The Nation:
Movement building, racial justice, and a recalibration of the progressive movement’s relationship with President Obama is important, as Gara LaMarche and Deepak Bhargava argue, but it isn’t a framework for making progressive ideals a part of actual law, habit, and culture.
The roadmap toward economic security, opportunity, and quality of life must be much more specific – and it must begin and end with the middle class.
Our task is not to follow or trust in President Obama, but to build around him by presenting progressive proposals that raise the bar of discussion and make it impossible for Democrats and the President to accept compromises that diminish middle class economic security.
Think that’s impossible to accomplish? Our cities and states already have a track record of victories utilizing this very strategy.
