Reading Liberally Read of the Day

The one blog post every liberal must read today:

REAL LEADERSHIP IS NEEDED, FROM ALL OF US
by Christy Hardin Smith, Firedoglake

We cannot wait for that leadership to come from anyone else. If we do, we'll be waiting an awfully long time, because most folks would rather sit back and keep their head down and hope that someone else will do the work for them. Let's not be those people. We must be the leaders we wish to see, to work for the change we know we need...to push for the reform that must come. The American dream is not simply that you accumulate things through increased wealth, and we need a big reminder of that. The America I love gives all of us a chance to work toward the best for us all -- because it is we, the people, for whom the government ought to be working.
