Thoughts on Bob Woodward's book "Obama's Wars" Bob Woodward's book "Obama's Wars" concerns not just the war in Afghanistan but also the ideological war in the White House between hawks and doves, as well as the war that occurred inside the President's head.

The straw that breaks, or strengthens, the Donkey's back Is President Obama's compromise on the Bush tax cuts for the super-rich the final straw, the one that breaks the Donkey's back? In fact, it's a great opportunity for progressives to revitalize the Democratic Party. Will the Party allow progressives to share some power? Will progressives flee to a third party?

How the Left can better market its message The disappointing outcome of the 2010 general election was a result of various factors: the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, an influx of corporate cash into the elections, superior organization and party discipline on the Right, and weak leadership, messaging, and media access on the Left. We can ameliorate the problem locally, in various states: adopt standard, shared, community-owned websites.

On Punishing the Dems Many progressives want to "punish the Dems" by refusing to vote, or by voting for a third party candidate this November. I can respect such progressives, because I too am upset with Obama. But I wonder: have these hardcore progressives really thought through the costs of their choice? Moreover, are they willing to respect other progressives who choose not to follow their (risky) st

The Battle over I-1098 in Washington State In Washington State there's a fierce battle underway between supporters and opponents of ballot Initiative 1098. I-1098 will establish an income tax on the wealthiest 1.2% of Washingtonians, while lowering taxes for the middle class and for small businesses. Recently newspapers, blogs, and the airwaves have been filled with pleas for and against I-1098.

Why Obama can't blame the GOP for his inability to pass progressive legislation President Obama and the Democratic leadership blame their inability to effect progressive change on the recalcitrance of the conservative opposition. This effort to deflect blame is belied by one salient fact: had Obama and the Democratic leadership prosecuted the Republicans for their numerous serious criminal acts, then the GOP would no longer be in a position to mount an effective resurgence.

Undividing the Left: Hard-core and Soft-core progressives The animosity between soft-core and medium hard-core progressives is kinda silly. Both factions share the same goals and values (economic justice, civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, environmentalism, unionism, an end to militarism, and justice & accountability). They just disagree on techniques.

The banal evil of predatory capitalism Many left-wingers decry the evilness of corporations. Yes, they're often evil, but not necessarily in the black-and-white way that left-wingers often portray them. The evil is mostly a banal, bureaucratic evil that arises not, typically, from any malice towards others so much as from uncontrolled greed. On the other hand, some actions by politicians and corporations are evil in an active, non-banal way.

Perhaps most importantly, I address libertarian objections to such public funding. We need government-funded journalism to act as a watchdog on both private and public corruption.

The Real Meaning of Accountability: Reflections on Obama's UN Speech Accountability is not just a matter of throwing a few Bush Administration officials in jail. Not at all. The real meaning of accountability is this: will America face the past and repudiate the ideologies, policies, and individuals who brought the nation to the brink of disaster? Torture and lying about war are just the tip of the iceberg. Many of the people responsible for crimes and for mismanagement remain in office.

It address the question of corruption and waste by pointing out that corruption and waste are present in the private sector too, and we need government also to play a watchdog role on the private sector.
