Encourage Progressive Leadership Open Thread

It's been almost a year since Election Day 2008, but some of our '08 champs could still use a little help. Just sayin'.
As of September 30, 2009:
|Democrat||Cash on Hand||Lingering Debt||Amount in the Red||Where to Contribute|
|Al Franken||$242,128||$450,859||$208,731||Contribute to Al|
|Jeff Merkley||$137,221||$271,589||$134,368||Contribute to Jeff|
I'm not saying there aren't plenty of 2010 candidates that need our help. (There are! Please help!) I'm just saying that helping our previous progressive winners to close their books and retire their debts could encourage other Democrats currently running to follow in more progressive footsteps, knowing we have their backs.
I'll leave you with a few reasons to be very, very proud of Senator Al Franken's first months as a U.S. Senator (and very, very motivated to help retire his campaign debt):
And a dash of Senator Merkley for good measure:
Consider this an open thread.
