Summary "The founders of Daily Kos and MyDD sound the call to create a new people-powered politics." "Crashing the Gate lays bare how ineffective, incompetent, and antiquated the Democratic Party establishment has become, and how it has failed to adapt and respond to new realities and challenges seized on by the Republican ideologues who are now running - and ruining - our country." "Written by two political bloggers in America, the book hails the new movement - of the netroots, the grassroots, and unorthodox labor unions, the maverick big donors - that is the antidote to old-school politics. Fueled by advances in technology and a hunger for a more authentic and populist democracy, this broad-based movement is changing the way political campaigns are waged."--BOOK JACKET
