Last week thousands of progressives (including a few from Mother Jones) converged on Washington D.C. for three days of strategizing, networking, motivating, and in some cases (possibly involving representatives from Mother Jones) drinking. This was the Take Back America conference, devised and laid on by the Campaign for America's Future and the Institute for America's Future (we liberals are forward-looking, you can't deny it!) and dedicated to the proposition that progressives can and must get their act together already! If you missed the event, don't worry -- as of today you can check out the major speeches, behind-the-scenes footage, and radio interviews online. Go see -- and let's make sure that what happens in Washington doesn't stay in Washington.
