The LiberalOasis Radio Show

Today at 10 AM ET, The LiberalOasis Radio Show was broadcast on WHMP-AM in Western MA. My special guest was Glenn Hurowitz of Democratic Courage, author of the new book, Fear and Courage in the Democratic Party. From Iowa, he discussed how the Democratic candidates were faring in showing courage and earning trust with the electorate.

Hurowitz also offered a news scoop:

I talked to a major statewide leader with a large following ... I can't say his name yet, but he told me that he's going to endorse Edwards next week. And I think that could really [make] a significant difference. So I think we're on the cusp of an Edwards surge.

Big endorsements (Al Gore, Sen. Tom Harkin, SEIU and AFSCME) did not seal the deal for Howard Dean in the 2004 Iowa caucuses, leading many to question their value in the modern era.

But with Edwards often squeezed out of the media spotlight in favor of Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, a major endorsement could change the media dynamic.

The audio podcast for the show is here. And you can watch my opening monologue below, about how we can build the mandate to solve the climate crisis.
