This was the title of a Netroots panel discussing, well, what to do when he's just not that into you.
"The signing of a "Don't Ask Don't Tell" repeal act late last year demonstrated change was possible, but it did not come without a fight. The struggles between activists, donors, lobbyists, journalists and the administration in 2009-10 provides insights for other progressive movements pushing this administration to lead on our issues."
The panelists recalled last year's Netroots, where Dan Choi confronted Senator Harry Reid about Don't Ask Don't Tell, and how that affected the playing out of Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal, as well as chaining themselves to the White House fence, and the DREAM Act activists walking across the country. Of course, Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal was passed, after it looked extremely doubtful for quite a long time, and the DREAM Act lost by 5 votes in the Senate, after having been given no chance of getting more than a handful of votes.
It was a fascinating discussion by all, but Dan Choi got the largest round of applause, after noting that we need to go after the American Dream over and over and over again, and that politicians want and need to be pushed to stand up for that dream.
