The election of Barack Obama generated hope for a new progressive national agenda. The reality, however, has been a disappointment for many, and leaves open the question for those on the left - is voting for Obama in 2012 the best route to take? On this edition, we hear excerpts of a panel discussion at the 2012 Left Forum, titled “The 2012 Elections: Lesser Evil or Left Alternative?”

Special thanks to People of Color Organize.
