Saying nothing but his personal belief, prior to the NC vote, and then announcing his support the day after the NC vote was the best way to use the circumstances for his own benefit. He will not only get much of his alienated base to take a second look at his accomplishments,he prevented the Republicans from claiming the vote was vote against Obama. We forget that he is a Chicago politician. That gives me great encouragement, considering the current non-position of the left. We need SMART tactics and I think we have the right leader with the right tactics for our current difficulties. PROGRESSIVE AMERICA THE TIME TO ARISE HAS ARRIVED. VOTE!

He will never get the votes of the religious right anyway, but it will help with those who actually think.

Obama supports gay marriage?! So what.

I mean, really, and what is he going to do about it? Let excuses surround his failure to do anythingt?!

Not impressed. It is just a campaign marketing ploy.

How can it alienate Independents when nearly 60% of Independents favor marriage equality?

Who Does Our Economy Serve?

During a speech at New York University Friday, Hillary Clinton took aim at “quarterly capitalism,” her name for corporate America’s endless - and senseless - pursuit of profits.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
