"Especially since the ascendancy of Bill Clinton, the left-wing of the party has been increasingly marginalized. As a consequence, the American Left today lacks an institutional framework which could serve as a meeting ground for its various factions, movements and tendencies. None of the Left formations in this country -- socialists, peace activists, feminists, environmentalists, trade unionists, community organizers, gay and lesbian activists, anti-racists, cultural radicals, etc. -- have the resources to stand alone and still make a difference."
"As befits a party that aspires to be a 'big tent' for progressives, the more than 6,000 members of the New Party are a rather diverse group of people. About half of our members are women. About half are people of color. Three quarters are working class and one quarter have advanced professional training. Over half of our membership belong to labor unions or neighborhood organizations. A fair portion of our membership is already active in the labor, environmental, peace & justice, feminist, and/or civil rights movements. A number of us were involved in Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition."
One of those members was Barack Obama.
