Radical Center

The Radical Center "Movement" Wikipedia definition seems to be an attempt to take American politics toward a centrism that currently doesn't exist in an electoral sense. Since this seems to be close to what WeMatter.com is trying to do, so I am pointing so some references to the material that I think is relevant to that set of thoughts: Please E-mail me if I am in error in missing these links or missing others.
