What Progressives Can Learn From The Tea Party   video
Society & Culture  (tags: Tom Hartman, progressives, tea party, Republican Party, Democrat Party, conservatives, blue dogs )

- 3 days ago -
Progressives should not just be fighting the Tea Party but instead learning from them on how they took control of the Republican Party and forced the entire Conservative establishment to lurch so far to the Right. We need to bring ours to the left.
