The American Left 6 months on

Over at the Daily Kos, Bill in Portland Maine thinks George Bush's track record makes him nothing better than a hack psychic - and he wants his money back from the 62 million Americans who voted for a second Bush term. Well, as Todd Gitlin points out in today's openDemocracy piece on America six months after the US elections, it's time for the Left to put the election behind them and renew their struggle for control of American hearts and minds. As one of the core memebers of the SDS in the 1960s, Gitlin is an authority on the topography of prolonged struggle.

And while we're on the subject of the American Left, Stirling Newberry has an excellent potted history of the US Democrat party here.
