Norman Solomon and Paul Jay discuss the Struggle in the Democratic Party


The Real News Network has the interview Norman Solomon and Paul Jay discuss the Struggle in the Democratic Party.

We’re down in the hole, we do not have a lever to pull that can move the Democratic Party in a progressive direction, and yet there’s tremendous organizing going on.


Norman Soloman is still holding on to the crackpot reality he decries. Toward the end of the first part he explains why it is a waste of time to form a third party. However, for most of the hour he makes a darn good case that the Democratic Party cannot be rescued. (See the quote above that I have taken from the interview.)
