Summary: Cenk talks to The Nation's Ari Melber about his report Looking Back at One Year of Organizing for America . Ari's take is moderate, i.e. the effort is by no means useless (and in fact it has some nice upside), but it also has some big shortfalls. Cenk is more pessimistic, pointing to the complete lack of focus WRT to the economy, the 'permanent campaign' mentality and the fact that most of the effort seems to be behind Democrats who already support the president.

2. K&R.
I took myself off of Organizing for America's list when the health care reform turned out to be worse than the status quo.
Now I'm hoping Dean or Gore will challenge Obama in the primaries.

Are all grass-roots going to astro-turf, everywhere? Where have all the people gone? Gone to indoor/outdoor, kitchen floors, everywhere. Long time passing. (little tune for you)
