The Midterm Elections and What Will They Mean For The Progressive Movement
September 30, 2010 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Will the Democrats lose the House? How many seats might they lose and why? Has Obama lost the trust of the progressives? Has the tea party taken over the populist movement in this country? Can the Dems and Obama fix the economy? What do you think? Come for projections, analysis and a lively discussion!
