Van Jones Keeps Hope Alive

If you need a little jolt of something electric to get you rolling today, take a look at the remarkable speech Van Jones delivered at Netroots Nation just a few days back.

Jones, who is the co-founder of Ms. Foundation grantee Green for All, addressed the crowd at Netroots on the topic of "Hope and Heartbreak," outlining how a green economy can save America's future and urging progressives to "keep hope alive" even in the midst of the many challenges we face.

We kid you not: you probably haven't heard a speech this inspiring since the presidential campaign of 2008. What an excellent way to start the week. [See video below.]
