Hartmann interviews Naomi Klein
On her new book, No Is Not Enough: How Can We Stop Trump and Take Back Our Country. One thing is that progressives must take back the issue of resisting free trade in favor of fair trade. It used to be a Democratic Party issue but they let it slide away with their corporate fawning. It was a key issue T-Swamp appropriated during the campaign because the Dems had abandoned it. Another is that progressives need to quit just bitching about the Swamp and strongly and repeatedly put forth their progressive values as expressed in policy proposals. They also need a strong, authentic messenger who lives those values. Sanders was one but we now need another for the next election. Clinton did not in any way inspire that sort of genuine authenticity.
