What a principled counterattack campaign against the GOP would look like.
Where their interests overlap, progressive politics can thrive.
In a second Obama term, we must organize to win a new social contract for a new economy.
While preventing a Republican triumph is imperative, we should have no illusions about Obama.

In this election and after, we need to write a new story for our changing nation that places care and connection at the center.
In the contest that comes after November, Obama will be on the wrong team.
A Romney presidency would rob progressive movements of the oxygen required to grow deeper and broader roots.
Forget Mitt Romney. With the foreign policy crisis in the Middle East, can the president make it to November 7?
But does his DNC speech signal that Obama will now champion the climate fight? Or was he just telling the Democratic base what they wanted to hear?
