Well, unless things go very badly pear shaped, six years to build a movement, fight for progressive policies, build up the progressive bench in state legislatures, primary the worst Democrats of the Corporate wing of the party ... then find a standard bearer to bring a Change Platform and hit the 2016 primary race like a Mack Truck.
So never claim that nobody warned you. You have been warned.
Populist movements don't build themselves ...
... It doesn't matter what the "horse race" outcome of the campaign is, if we fight the campaign. Fighting it, we learn how to fight. Learning how to fight political battles, we become citizens again. Becoming citizens again, we reclaim the Republic that lies dormant beneath the bread and circuses of modern American society.
