Short Description: 
Are progressives too intent on winning? A look at the fluoridation campaign.

A strong win by opponents of a ballot measure to fluoridate Portland's water supply demonstrated that a grassroots movement could turn back a well-financed political campaign. But the fluoridation issue's splite of the city's progressive community revealed something else: the speed with which that community could be polarized and each side demonize the other. This week, Dqve Mazza looks at these disturbing aspects of the fluoridation campaign, whether they reflect deeper problems with how progressives advance their beliefs, and if progressives are too intent on winning.
