This week I emailed Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) to thank him for supporting the P5+1 agreement with Iran, and for endorsing Hillary Clinton to be our party’s 2016 presidential nominee. As we’ve discussed, progressives need to be as vocal in thanking elected leaders when they take stands we favor as we are in criticizing stands we oppose. If we’re not, they only hear our complaints and it becomes easy to dismiss us as … chronic complainers.
