They made a good choice now let’s hope that it proves effective.


“Now is the time to elect unapologetic progressive voices across the country.”

From John Nichols:

Bernie Sanders Bets on Ben Jealous

With his endorsements of candidates like Jealous, Sanders is framing the next American politics.

What progressives also get is a new face on the national political stage. If Jealous wins the Democratic nomination in a crowded primary field that features a number of capable contenders, if he goes on to defeat Republican Governor Larry Hogan, and if he succeeds in making Maryland both a bastion of resistance to the Trump presidency and a center of progressive innovation, his name will eventually appear on lists of presidential and vice-presidential prospects.

(Bernie) is seeking to expand those movements, to build them up and out, and to invite others into leadership roles. The purpose is to make it clear that the next American politics will be bigger and bolder, more inclusive and diverse, than the narrow and dysfunctional politics it is certain to replace.
