Please support new Progressive Leadership... we must rebuild the Democratic Party from the ground up

Farflung correspondents, 

​My initial reaction to the election was to "cocoon", ​to plead fatigue and old age to just withdraw into my private life and hunker down, avoiding political involvement as just too painful. But that is not the way forward. We, who believe in a sensible, fact based Progressive agenda, must take control of the Democratic Party and rebuild. It will take a long time, and much ground has been and will be lost. But there is no alternative. Politics is in its essence is nonviolent struggle, but it is struggle. And we cannot give up. We must get smarter, and get moving. 


It is abundantly clear that the Democratic Party is in need of new leadership. Deborah Wasserman-Schultz, the former chair, was forced to resign after emails showed her interfering in the primary between
Sanders and Clinton.

CLEARLY, the old guard of the Democratic Party has FAILED UTTERLY, and it's time for a new Progressive party to emerge, with entirely new leadership. 
Frankly put, the Democratic National Committee's last two leaders have been mired in controversy and ineptitude, and after giving away full control of the House, the Senate, and the White House to Republicans, it's time to appoint a truly strong and progressive leader to take the reins. Someone who has a finger on the pulse of the American middle class, and who has a long track record of standing up for the people in a fair, honest, and unwavering way.

Keith Ellison is that leader, and its time we show the DNC that millions of Americans agree. Please sign our petition.

That's why I signed a petition to Democratic National Committee, which says:

"Bernie Sanders has proposed that Keith Ellison be the next Chairman of the DNC. Now its time for millions of Americans to voice their agreement: sign and share today. "

Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name:
