Rep. Raul Grijalva – Progressives should assert their independence.

One of the things I think progressives are expected to do, and should do more of, is assert their independence. I’m a Democrat, have been, will continue to be a Democrat. But for a progressive in the Democratic Party, it also means that you’re part conscience and that force that moves the party forward, keeps it being a Democratic Party. So you have to assert your independence, and I think if you want to define progressives, in a sense it’s about asserting independence, about going against what the common thread might be at that time – not independent as a party, but independence.
