Third Way is no Democratic organization. Go check who sits on their board of directors. Mostly Wall Street Bankers.

We do not need activists on the left any more than we need activists on the right. What we need are politicians whose interests are aligned with those of the majority of voters.

Ellison is similar to Al Sharpton and that is no comparison to be proud of.

All he does is give taxpayers' money to people who don't pay taxes at all.

We don't need Populists, we need Moderates. Rod E is grandstanding to "buy" votes.

Keith Ellison on the left is as bad as Michelle Bachman on the right. They accomplish absolutely nothing (remember the light bulbs?). How do we get rid of these useless people? Regarding Medicare and Social Security, will we please start discussing means testing these entitlements. I would get hit by both of them, but not significantly as I imagine is also true for many people.

"Ellison takes lead role in giving away other peoples money to the people who vote for him". In the end, if this nation goes down, it will be from the rot within from the likes of Ellison and his supporters. Bill G.

@ihatelogins0. Have you ever lived in a poverty-ridden neighborhood where no one works and no one knows how to find a job or get to a job or perform a job (for many reasons)? I thought not.

xyzzy72, it is sad, but what are the progressives doing for you? What are they doing to fix the problem? The answer is nothing. The problem is the progressives need people to need them. That is why they continue to create victims, without victims, this party is dead or reformed.
