Robert Reich won, too! He won because he gave us a vision of what the Democratic Party of Massachusetts might be. He won because he presented a vision of a Commonwealth transformed by his insistence on social justice. He won because he brought back into the political process voters who had felt disenfranchised by business as usual

I urge all of those who worked for Reich to continue their struggle within the Democratic Party. Continue to volunteer and above all continue to articulate the values that Reich expressed and embodied. Only if they stay the course can they bring about the transformation of state politics that he has begun.
