I am with you 100% (especially that Gore would be the best Prez), though I'm not altogether convinced that Obama is the only one besides Gore who can derail Hillary. It's still early. We don't know who plans to step in. There's time for surprises.
I'd love to see another woman jump in the race. THAT would derail Hillary. Any prospects?
Are you out of your mind?! Do you have ANY idea the amount of time and energy that is required to be a fulltime organizer? Are you suggesting that ONLY people who can afford to support themselves independent of a fulltime job should go to work for companies like GCI?
It's this attitude that has consistently gotten the Democrats NOWHERE as far as fostering young talent in their ranks. The GOP has known for years and years that the best way to strengthen their organization and ensure that their agenda is furthered is to invest in these people. This leadership training that has become so popular with Democratic organizations the past few years? Republicans have been doing it for decades and do it FAR better than we do. AND they make sure that their trainees are placed into well-paying jobs.
What does that ensure? That they don't leave the fold to join the private sector in order to FEED THEMSELVES, which is what progressives are consistently forced to do.
It is NOT selfish to want to be able to support ourselves. Apparently you are lucky enough not to have to worry about that particular dilemma.
Jasmine, have you not heard the term "the ends don't justify the means"? What about that do you not understand?
Why rehash it?? Because organizations that we respect and put a lot of effort into are utilizing this organization that ABUSES its employees! They go against everything that the Democratic Party stands for and it should not stand.
We'll shut up when GCI and companies like GCI become irrelevant and when our party and organizations we support (like MoveOn) see the error of their ways and stop giving them money.
