The Democratic Party will bounce back and maybe one day our leaders will learn that the "center" isn't the answer. So what now? Get involved if you aren't already. MoveOn, Bold Progressives, ActBlue, ACLU,and Asian Pacific Americans for Progress to start. There are many out there who were grinding it out during the Bush years and aren't throwing in the towel. I don't hear a fat lady singing, do you? Don't forget the Trans-Atlantic Throwdown Episode 2 is now available!
