"If Democrats are in trouble, we don't have to presume they are in trouble because they did too much." So says John Nichols, who sat down with Laura in Wisconsin, at Fighting Bob Fest, and discussed progressive congresspeople who have been stalwarts in Washington since their election on a wave of anti-Bush feeling--and who face tough races. Donna Edwards, Chellie Pingree, Phil Hare, Alan Grayson, Steve Kagan are all facing challenges this year, and are the kind of representatives that truly do make a difference in Congress. Nichols notes that if progressives like them keep their seats while other Democrats lose, there's a valuable lesson there for the party. Distributed by Tubemogul.
