Josh Marshall, Democratic hero

It's more for stuff he did earlier in the game than anything he's doing now, but someday when Social Security privatization is defeated, I'd like to see Howard Dean hang a medal on Josh Marshall's neck. The old "Fainthearted Faction" vs. "Conscience Caucus" lists were really valuable in directing our pressure exactly where it needed to go, and Marshall was tireless in pointing out all the trickery by which Bush was trying to sell his plan. Congressmen were referring to him in letters to constituents, and any media people who read his blog knew what the score was. Most likely this is just blogosphere myopia, but I don't know of anybody outside Congress who's fought this thing as effectively as he has.
