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!

Not impressed. It is just a campaign marketing ploy.

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
From Screwed:

Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
