Leaderless left

Over on Transcendental Floss, Howard Muhlberg has some good observations about contemporary politics. He talks about Al Gore’s resurgence, but he’s concerned about the status of the loyal opposition.

There is a gaping void of leadership on the left, and the consequences of not regaining control of Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008 are too dire to even imagine. Some would say it’s too early for any potential candidate to stand up and declare their intent to run, but I disagree wholeheartedly. There’s never been another time, I suspect, since the Civil War, when we more urgently needed a passionate leader. If someone would only step up right now and actually lead the charge to the mid-term elections, using this moment in history as a platform to rally the left and center, the resulting wave of hope could really turn this country around.

He’s got it right there, I think. We need some leadership! Link to the post on Transcendental Floss. US citizens, don’t forget to call your congressional representatives about the war.
