Re: Values Added: Fiddlesticks! (Sarah Posner & David Weigel)
thank you bhtv for an intelligent and fair analysis of OWS. But I have to disagree with Posner's remark (and Weigel's audible nod) that the protestors concede "failure" by the Democratic Party. They may certainly feel it, as well they should, but I dont hear much partisan griping or malcontent directed at Obama. Yes, Charlie Rangel was booed away! But there is no "third-party" presence, no Green Party, no Nader, no talk of 2012. OWS will certainly affect and shift the public discourse to some degree but, barring some further development, they will probably end up voting for Obama anyway!
