As i write this a panel on CNN is discussing whether or not the Democratic party can ''harness '' the Occupy Wall st. etc. Movement . The General consenus is that it can though a Wall St. Journal Editor cautions that the Anti-Capitalist ''rhetoric '' is something to be concerned about .
The others weren't too concerned . One panelist David Gergen opioned that the movement might just reduce their demands just to '' Jobs Now''
Anyway i hope that if the two Democratic party Mayors and the one Green (Who seems to be almost in the closet re her party affilation , She almost never mentions it ) Mayor do speak at the Occupy Oakland Camp they won't just get applause for vague ''progressive '' statements. Hopefully they will be subjected to hard questions .
