Did we really gain anything in November?

The latest failure of intestinal fortitude by the Democratic majority, from Yahoo! News/AP: Dems abandon war authority provision

"WASHINGTON - Top House Democrats retreated Monday from an attempt to limit President Bush's authority for taking military action against Iran as the leadership concentrated on a looming confrontation with the White House over the Iraq war.

Officials said Speaker Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record) and other members of the leadership had decided to strip from a major military spending bill a requirement for Bush to gain approval from Congress before moving against Iran."

I really, really believe that we have to start working at the grassroots to replace the Democratic Party with a party that truly represents Progressive values. We might just be surprised at how fast it takes off. The time is now. The opportunity is now.
