First, a backdrop before checking out this awesome video. In 2009, Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) was discovered to have been one of 70 members of congress to also be official members of the Democratic Socialists of America caucus. Another aspect to keep in mind is that Schakowsky's district is heavily Jewish and she has run on a pro-Israel platform in the past. Her opponent is a conservative named Joel Pollack.

In a debate on October 17th, U.S. policy toward Israel was a central theme. Attendance was high yet media coverage, save for citizen journalists, was virtually non-existent. Why? Could it be because Schakowsky's alleged pro-Israel stance is in stark contrast to her being a professed progressive? It was progressive groups who were behind the Gaza flotilla for example. This video report from Founding Bloggers is a must see.

As a side note, Schakowsky was also one of the four names given by Rahm Emanuel to Rod Blagojevich as requested replacements for Obama's Senate seat. The other three were Jesse Jackson Jr., Dan Hynes, and Tammy Duckworth. In light of Obama's treatment of Israel, the Schakowsky choice is interesting in light of this video report.
