...progressives need to act like they are the natural leaders of this country again. But we can't do that because we have too much distrust of power. We're so busy standing on the outside critiquing the Establishment that no one is going to hand us the keys to become the Establishment. And too many liberals don't want that responsibility because it would tarnish their purity.
There's a theme here with Cory Booker's idea of sedentary agitation.
That's just a teaser of what's on my mind today. Perhaps more about it later when I have some time.
