The Activist Class War Continues
Within the progressive activist class, there is also a very real class stratification. While the blogosphere and the netroots may not be "the people" within America or the Democratic party as a whole, within the world of progressive activists, they are definitely "the people," "the masses," "the rank and file," and any other populist term you want to throw out there. I believe the main mark against Hillary Clinton within the blogs and the netroots is the degree to which she is perceived as the uber-representative of the upper, aristocratic classes of the progressive activist world.
This is what will do in the left over time. Do you think the average voter would have any idea what this guy is talking about. With ideas like this "uber-representative of the upper, aristocratic classes of the progressive activist world" you are really going to ignite the grass-roots. I was expecting to see the words dialectic and proletariat.
