UPDATE! DONE is temporarily on hiatus. Its senior editor, DK Jamaal (DefiantOne), now writes national political commentary and blog reports on Examiner.com. You can check it out at: http://www.examiner.com/x-19823-Progressive-Examiner.
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.
