"There really couldn’t be a better time to organize, to run a viable candidate. And to really say the Democratic Party has not served us well, so we’re going to Democrats 2.0. We’re bringing it into the 21st century, we’re going to be called the New Democrats, or the Roosevelts, or the whatever you come up with, and we’re going to run people who are going to win." - Filmmaker Michael Moore, who is urging actor Matt Damon to run for president as a third-party candidate.
