"One Nation Working Together" rally's turn in D.C. -
billed as the progressive's answer to the Glenn Beck "Tea Party" rally held earlier. a wide variety of speakers extolled on the evils of the Republican Party as they worked to energize the Democratic progressive voters. The Washington Post has more here.

One thing the dueling rallies have shown is the majority of Americans fall closer to the middle and not into either of these two groups. For Democrats, look to see a growth in the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), initially formed under the Clinton administration.


Control of Congress remains too close to call -
the NY Times has a good read today on the current status of the rapidly approaching mid term elections. While Republicans are certain to gain seats in both the House and Senate, it is still questionable if they will be able to gain enough to reach a majority.

Tomorrow, and every Monday prior to the election, we will publish a compilation of polls showing where the Congressional races stand.


Gibbs to become DNC Chair? - has a good read here. Speculation is he would leave his White House Press Secretary position to lead the DNC. This would give President Obama even more control as he heads into a reelection mode prior to the 2012 presidential election. Current DNC chair Tim Kaine is rumored to be then offered an administration position.


Problems persist in new Health Care Plan -
a centerpiece of the new health care plan was that those individuals with preexisting conditions could not be denied coverage. Unfortunately, premiums remain too high for those on fixed incomes or with low incomes and huge under enrollments exits in the programs across the United States. You can read more here.
