Do we really have a choice? Abe sizes up the 2012 presidential election.

It's the mating call of the Naderites: there's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans. They're both corporate parties; the only difference lies in how far right-of-center they lie.

But there is a difference. It's not as stark as most progressives might like, but it's there, and it makes itself felt over time. That's why, as frustrated and as impatient as we might be, we've got to pay attention. With Joe away, Abe looks at the quadrennial liberal presidential dilemma.

Richard Wolff - Occupy Wall Street & the Economic Crisis (interview)

By any standard, 2011 was a historic year of protest and revolution. In Tunisia and Egypt seemingly invulnerable regimes were toppled. In Wisconsin, citizens outraged over attacks on public workers, stayed at the state capitol building and camped and marched in the freezing cold. In August, more than 1,000 demonstrators were arrested protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, in the largest act of civil disobedience in decades. As a result of popular pressure, the project has been put on hold. Then, on September 17, in the heart of economic power, the Occupy Wall Street movement was born. Since then, it has spread and taken different shapes and forms. OWS has changed our vocabulary.
