I've been chatting with socialists over the last several days. Tonight, we'll be podcasting my interview with Dan LaBotz, SPUSA candidate for Senate from Ohio.
Last week I talked to Billy Wharton, co-chair of SPUSA.
Both Wharton and LaBotz emphasized left unity and solidarity with workers as the basis of political vision and strategy. Socialists are joining forces with Greens; many small socialist organizations are suppporting LaBotz's candidacy, and in general, there's hope for convergence rather than fragmentation on the left. Refreshing.
