A New Progressive Policy War Room

Washington, DC – John Podesta and the Center for American Progress Action Fund announced the launch of the Hyde Park Project – a new progressive policy war room that will feature the first-ever public policy rapid response blog of its kind.

The daily mission of the project is a substantive, focused, and relentless effort in each of these areas:

Defining the Bush record on the four core policy areas

Critiquing the conservative approach

Promoting progressive policy solutions

Defending those progressive ideas from false attacks
