I received the following email the other day:
Dear MoveOn member,
Hundreds of thousands of us nominated and voted, and now the results are in—we know where to focus MoveOn’s efforts for the next year.
We asked you to vote for your three top goals, but after looking at the results, it’s clear that four rose above and beyond the rest.
Here’s how it worked out, in descending order:
1. Universal Health Care
2. Economic Recovery and Job Creation
3. Build a Green Economy and Stop Climate Change
4. End the War in Iraq
The full results are here.
It’s pretty telling that within the confines of the far left, health care has leapfrogged over Iraq as the most important priority. I’ve been telling people that for all the talk about Barack Obama disappointing progressives, if he gets universal health care done, he could nuke Iran and still be a hero of liberals.
