Groups like the PDA straddle the progressive divide by being willing to work both within and outside of the Democratic Party. That is, they're willing to support individual third-party candidates and work with advocacy groups unconnected to the Democratic Party, but they give preference to progressive Democratic candidates. This the position I'm most comfortable with.

Unfortunately, things may have to get a lot worse before the political landscape changes in America. If things do get worse, who's to say that we won't end up with a right wing populist government?
