Jonathan Tasini

Earlier I wrote about the Tompkins County Democratic Committee debate over endorsing Senator Clinton. Many committee members, dissatisfied with Clinton's failure to oppose the war in Iraq, are following or supporting the campaign of Jonathan Tasini.

Capitol Confidential, reporting on the upcoming Working Families Party convention, writes:
U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton wants the line, but so does anti-war activist Jonathan Tasini, who failed at the Democratic convention to get traction personally but claimed a victory in getting the Dems to pass a resolution condemning the Iraq War. Clinton has come under fire from some liberals - many of whom have found a haven in the WFP - for not firmly condemning the war and demanding immediate withdrawal.

As I once heard on The West Wing, "Good. That's how it's supposed to work."
