And now for a little good news

New Poll Finds Bush Priorities Are Out of Step With Americans NYT
There is hope that the juggernaut of the right is not setting in well with those 5-10% of Americans who actually make up the real voting nexus of American politics. Everyone else has already decided which side they are on. Anytime this swing group shifts toward reason and away from the neocon cult of essential fascism, we have reason to hope that all is not lost.

Dems forcing committee vote on Gannon/Plamegate Raw Story
"House Democrats say they will force a vote in the House Judiciary Committee to put the Republican majority on the record with regards to investigating discredited White House correspondent Jeff Gannon who allegedly had access to confidential information, including a memorandum naming CIA operative Valerie Plame."
Keeping this story alive is very important, and one gets the feeling that Representative Conyers understands this all too well.

In Two Southern States, Outsiders Rise to Power on Grass-Roots Appeal
Two southern states, including our own wonderful North Carolina, are seeing grass-roots muscle flexing that can bring real change to the inside workings of the Democratic Party. Long kept in check by the established political environment in Raleigh and Little Rock, the rise of Dean inspired progressive action is giving real power to those that think outside the Boardroom.

Ya know, sometimes it seems that the grassroots in America are really deeply planted and well rooted (no pun intended), and when it comes down to personal choice action (i.e., on the local level), these folks come out in force. Walk down any street in any town in America and you can see these good folks everywhere. They don't have labels or anything, but if you look closely, you can 'tell' that they are people of conscience.

In Peace,
