Netroots Caucus Plan for Iraq

Major General Paul Eaton has worked with Darcy Burner, Donna Edwards, Eric Massa, and six other challengers to craft a new vision for America’s diplomatic and military efforts in Iraq. They are rolling out a new plan for Iraq tomorrow at the Take Back America conference.

This is a remarkable moment in progressive politics. My guess is that the DCCC and the Democratic establishment in Washington aren’t crazy about the idea of challengers charting their own, non-DCCC approved policy course. But these Dems are putting their faith in the netroots to recognize the importance of their presence in Congress to lead on Iraq and other issues. I look forward to seeing the full plan and how it plays for these brave progressive challengers.

Update:
