Some may feel we have not adequately addressed one issue or another in an email, but that doesn’t mean that we’re indifferent or, as one person cynically accused, are “waiting on the polling.” I believe when you look at the candidates and campaigns we support, our positions are quite clear.
A couple of people have noted that some of the language on our web site is unclear. We are aware of this, and it’s something that we are currently working to fix. In fact, we’re in the process of overhauling our web site completely, and look forward to rolling out some new online tools to help progressives organize and make a difference on the ground in important races.
I am glad we progressives have such energy and passion for politics, but let’s use that energy and passion constructively. 2008 is our best chance since 1974, (the Watergate year) to really change Congress for the better, and hopefully win the White House. We at 21st Century Democrats are excited, and I look forward to working with you along the way.
Dan Lucas, Political Director at 21st Century Democrats
