With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Just back from New York and had a great trip. Will write up a report soon about it but in the meantime wanted to say howdy to my loyal blog readers.

One of the readers of this blog is Anne Gibbons from Code Pink NYC. She, and Sally Jones from Peace Action, did a great job coordinating my talks in Manhattan, Great Neck and last night in Staten Island. Also yesterday Anne arranged for Alice Slater and I to do a one-hour radio interview on WBAI in the city. It's the Pacifica radio station and I was quite happy about being there. I've done phone interviews with various programs on WBAI over the years but had never been to the studio.

The photo above was taken last night at a book cafe in Staten Island where I spoke and we had a great discussion following my talk. Much of the discussion focused on the Democrats and how much, or how little, support they truly deserve these days from the progressive community following their abysmal record on Iraq and other issues. No matter where you go these days that is the topic folks are debating and I think it is a very healthy thing for us to be kicking it around.

Don't be timid about having a discussion in your community about this question. Our future depends on us ending our slavish servitude to a party that takes us completely for granted.
