Donna Edwards: A Real Progressive Challenges Status Quo in DC [VIDEO]

Fueling candidates like Edwards are the foot soldiers of the progressive battle—bloggers and other political outsiders.
In Maryland, six-term incumbent Al Wynn is facing a tough challenge from newcomer Donna Edwards. According to Edwards, Wynn has sold out to big business and the Bush agenda, including a vote for the war in Iraq and the 2005 energy bill. Wynn says his challenger is naïve and doesn't understand that there are choices in politics between compromise and doing nothing. Fueling candidates like Edwards are the foot soldiers of the progressive battle—bloggers and other political outsiders like, Matt Stoller of OpenLeft.com who are drumming up national support on the Internet. Maria Hinojosa speaks with the candidates and Matt Bai, author of "The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers, and the Battle To Remake Democratic Politics."
