Who are the leaders who are doing what leaders do...
- Organizing Planning Actions
- Defining Vision and Mission
- Identifying issues
- Creating the Core, Important Conversations
- Building the base
- Influencing politics (possibly, this is a fantasy.)
Some of the leadership comes from organizations, so please include organizations too.
And are these regional or local leaders or national leaders? Are there any real national leaders? How about international leaders? How about leaders on specific issues?
The mainstream media will suggest that Obama is a progressive leader, that members of congress are. Maybe you think that. If so, say so and give your reasons. or say who you DO think are the leaders.
And let's talk about the question of whether it's possible to support people or orgs that push for weak, sub-progressive solutions, like HCAN, which, by my mind, sold out progressives by helping to sell the Obama sellout plan.
I'm not going to include my list right away, but will after some comments are posted. I'd like to see who IS included and be sure to say why.
Also, if I've missed dimensions of leadership, as I'm sure I have, please add them.
I'm hoping to take the list that's generated and will use it to create a poll. At least we'll know on OEN, who the most respected and popular leaders are.
