So, last evening I attended an informational meeting for the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus and, unlike a similar meeting I attended for MoveOn several election cycles ago, I was impressed. The crowd was small, about 32 or so, but the energy was good and people were articulately intelligent and informed. I walked away from MoveOn, seeing the organization as just an astroturf organization for New (center-right) Democrats. I think the CCPC has potential.
I’ll be going to another CCPC meeting tonight; a watch party for Bernie’s kickoff of Our Revolution. Bernie’s website seems to have fallen behind the curve on getting the word out, but locally, CCPC is listing three watch parties tonight beginning at 8 p.m. (Bernie is scheduled to speak at 9 p.m.; one each on the east side (at the home of Yvonka Hall, 18115 Harvard Ave.), the west side (at the CCPC office, 11910 Detroit Ave.) and the south side (at the home of Liz Schulte, 10037 Hickory Ridge Dr. in Brecksville) of Cuyahoga County. (I’ll be attending the Brecksville event.)
CCPC is fueled from the left, mostly, as near as I could tell, by Bernie voters with only one participant last evening openly advocating for the support of Hillary Clinton. This is an organization worth looking at, and, if you’re impressed, as I am, supporting with your time and money.
