Here’s another campaign nod Barack Obama can try to dodge. Check out this editorial at the Communist Party USA website:
The struggle to defeat the ultra-right and turn our country on a positive path will not end with ObamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s election. But that step will shift the ground for successful struggles going forward.
One thing is clear. None of the peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s struggles Ã¢â‚¬â€ from peace to universal health care to an economy that puts Main Street before Wall Street Ã¢â‚¬â€ will advance if McCain wins in November.
LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s keep our eyes on the prize.
Isn’t seeking “prizes” something that evil capitalist pigs do? But I digress.
The CPUSA didn’t officially endorse Obama in the editorial, because he’s too slow for them (as Vladimir Lenin said, “communism is just socialism in a hurry”), so they’re looking for somebody more fleet aboot. But the CPUSA does seem to understand that they have to crawl before they can confiscate wealth on behalf of the “common good.”
