CUMMINGS CREEK COMPACT

This seems like something you'd read in the history books. Joe Trippi and his wife invite a bunch of concerned folks out to their Maryland farm. They eat well, they talk democracy, they work the field. At the end of the day they commit to keep the Dean movement moving forward. They sign the Cummings Creek Compact:

Change for America will be a national organization that unites progressive communities and sets an agenda of meaningful reform. The values that shaped our campaign are the same values that formed the moral foundation of our American democracy—and we carry those values today. We are committed far beyond a single election.

Our immediate path is clear: we must defeat George W. Bush and elect a new president, we must infuse elections at every level with the same commitment that built this movement—and you must decide how to do it.

Together, we will all shape the platform and mission of Change for America.

They'll be holding a series of summits around the country, including Minneapolis. I'll be there. My comment on the CoA thread: Democracy needs an upgrade! I wonder how this will differ from Camp Wellstone?
