March on Washington (mini)
I just attended the "Jobs not Cuts" rally near the Capitol. It was good, but too small—300 people or so. I hope it gets press coverage. I talked to a reporter from the conservative Weekly Standard, and gave him an earful, which I'm pretty sure he won't report. Afterward I spoke briefly with someone who has attended the "Rebuilding the American Dream" conference. He was optimistic that progressives will come together for 2012 and is himself running for congress. He said that there will be progressive candidates throughout the country in 2012. I hope there are, and they get elected.
