Progressive Wins In 2013

Joshua Holland of points out that for progressives, 2013 was not the painful, awful year some of us might have thought it was. Holland lists 15 progressive victories, some small, some not so small (e.g., two of our largest cities, NYC and LA, elected distinctly progressive mayors, despite aggressive pro-business fundraising). Do yourself a favor... read about some of the wins.

Holland appears to see these victories as the beginning of a trend. I'm not so sure, but I'll take all the wins we can get. The right-wing nut-jobs never cease, though; we have to keep winning the battles in 2014.

(The graphic at the right bearing a quote of the late lamented Senator Paul Wellstone appears to be a poster, but I know nothing of its origin. If anyone has any information, I'd be happy to give credit where it is due...)
