9. Thank you for the additional material on Jackson
I looked over it, and it doesn't paint him in a rosy picture. But, considering it comes from a site called "clarksphere", I still view it with a wary eye.

The editors of The Nation are not Democrats. They did not endorse Gore in 2000 and they do not want Democrats to win elections.

The editors and writers of The Nation are not Democratic Party loyalists. They are progressives and leftists. They have been as critical of the center-right shift of the Democratic Party as a whole as anyone over the past 10 years.

More than "wanting Democrats to win elections", they want them to stand up for progressive principles. While that may not seem like a worthy cause to you, it is to a progressive like myself.
