I agree that this is trouble for the Democrats. As was the Millions More
Movement rally yesterday. 

I watched a good deal of the rally on C-Span. I was particularly
interested in Farrakhan's speech. He placed an emphasis on making
demands on the government and reaching for alliances that seemed new for
him to me. He called black Democrats the equivalent of house slaves and
endorsed the idea of a new political party. He called for withdrawal
from Iraq.

I am curious what other list members think about this Millions More
Movement development.
