Wanna know something really cool?

I just read this at Firedoglake:

With 4.5 million members, MoveOn is now bigger than the NRA. Maybe our leaders should think about that for a while.
Holy shit. Dare I hope that our country now stands on the threshold of a new era of progressive politics? One where the preachers of peace and justice and equality are seen as the grownups in the room, and the gun nuts and the racists and the warmongers and the gay bashers and the Christofascists are irrelevant as a political force? Wouldn't that just be something?

After Tuesday night, I'm almost willing to believe it might be so.
