UPDATE! DONE now serves as an article chronicling the PUMA movement, that helped revive Hillary Rodham Clinton’s political career after the 2008 primaries, propelling her to the Presidency in 2016. While DONE opposed Obama’s candidacy in 2008, we recognize that he has evolved into a decent if imperfect President — a far better option that the Republican Party, which has devolved in a neo-Confederate alliance of virulent homophobes, xeonphobes, bigots, racists, naive libertarians, and greedy Ayn Rand-loving objectivists.
DONE (Democrats Over Nominating Elitists) is a blogging project, conceived in the spirit of Bill Bradley’s A Party Inverted, that urges the Democratic Party to organize itself around patriotism rather than partisanship and lasting principles rather than fleeting personalities. We unequivocally assert that the Democratic Party — in policies, campaigns, and candidates — must always reflect the virtues and values of common, working Americans.
