In one of her better segments, Rachel Maddow talked about the fact that the Democratic Party is getting a big reminder this week with just who their base is and that it would do them some good to quit chasing after corporate money and start representing them. As she noted, what's going on in Wisconsin and Ohio and around the country has meant a resurrection for public support of labor unions and progressive groups and that Democrats on the local level are standing with their constituents. She asked when those on the national level and President Obama are going to wake up as well.

She gave a nice plug to all of these groups as well. Thank you Rachel.
