The who, the what, the where, and the why

Our lead gate crashers seem to be having a great tour. The latest posting from Jerome describes a terrific sounding party at the home of Norman and Lyn Lear, stalwart progressives if ever there were such. One thing that I like about his post is that, while the basic message of CTG is how the Democratic party can regain power in national politics, it includes reminders of just why that matters. Yes, the party is far, far, far, far, far, far from perfect, and often not even all that close to mediocre, on important issues. But as Frances Fox Piven pointed out in The War at Home, progressives sure as $#*t aren’t going to make good progress with the Republicans in control. It’s one of those necessary/sufficient things: the Dems are necessary for better politics, but by themselves are not sufficient to guarantee them. Anyway, Jerome is talking about global warming in this case and what I’m trying to get at is that while Jerome and Markos focus on strengthening the party qua a party, the reason they’re doing so is because they know that there are principles at stake that the Democratic party can help sustain, rather than watching them be undermined so fully by the Republicans.
