Building a better Democratic Party

By Libby

Matt Stoller introduces us to Alan Grayson, Democratic candidate for Congress in Florida. He's the attorney of record in every single case now pending in Federal court involving war profiteers in Iraq. He's representing the whistleblowers. And this is the best campaign ad of the season so far.

As Matt points out, "Democratic leaders, who tend towards a bipartisan approach to solving problems, are going to be in for a shock from the left. People like Grayson aren't just going to speak out, they are going to organize within Congress, something the current progressive caucus doesn't do. That is in fact both their quickest route to power and what they believe in."
