Howard Dean, the former Democratic presidential hopeful and architect of the "50-state strategy", told a roomful of progressives Wednesday night that the left has plenty of reason for optimism.

Courage Campaign garnered over 75,000 signatures in support of Rep. Speier's bill. KQED covers the issue in this piece.
