This year was another classic example of the eternal debate between trying to achieve power through coy insider politics or doubling down on blunt, bold, vocal activism. We address the myth that this year's advocacy for left and progressive policies somehow hurt the Democrats in this election. And we discuss how, more importantly, if we do not fight for what we believe in - which includes actually vocalizing support for good po...
