THE STORY: The air was crackling with optimism and the possibility of a brighter future at the party to celebrate publication of Erica Payne’s latest work, The Practical Progressive: How to Build a Twenty-first Century Political Movement. The author is a long-time political strategist who specializes in progressive causes, and the guest list read like a who’s who of the New Left — equal parts scholars, journalists, bloggers and politicos — all of them hoping to become even more familiar faces in the next administration.
