For anyone considering the future of progressives, there is one major reason why the Obama campaign makes sense.
It is quite clear as the campaigns move along, Barack Obama has been inspiring and activating the youth vote and bringing out volunteers under the age of 30.
While good news for his campaign, it bodes well for the progressive vote down the line. As the Reagan election proved, the new voters who turned out for him have been in the pockets of conservatives for a generation to come.
Should Obama take the nomination, it is clear that the campaign will put voters in the bank for Democrats and progressives for years to come.
