At Americablog. The Four Big Points:
Rules for managing an Effective Progressive Coalition
1. No constituency in the Coalition takes a backward step to advance another’s cause. (I call this the Cruickshank Rule; see below.)
2. Members of the Coalition have each others’ back. No constituency under attack stands alone.
3. The Coalition serves the Coalition, not the Democratic Partyor any other group or goals.
4. The Coalition preferences political action to discussion. (This is the No Dithering Rule.)
