Daily Kos is a very widely read US blog that advocates electing more and better (more progressive) Democrats, as a means of pushing a more progressive agenda in US domestic and foreign policy.

A broad range of mainly progressive and liberal Democrats post there, but everyone from conservative Blue Dogs to radical avowed leftwingers are among the regulars on dkos, including some in or near the Obama admin, and the grassroots networks that got him so overwhelmingly elected, "ordinary (activist) citizens", geeks and political of the most feared and respected sites of teh "radical left" blogosphere.

Debate can get pretty lively, and critiques of Republicans and Blue Dogs, especially, have become notoriously provocative, and even influential, to the point that the founder, Markos, and his blog, have been reviled by Faux "News", et al, and both both courted and decried by some major Democratic Party figures.

Several people from the dkos blog have established a presence in Second Life, where events include a regular live internet radio stream talk show called Virtually Speaking, with famous guests, every Thursday, and a yearly Netroots Nation SL convention, in conjunction with the annual Real Life dkos Netroots Nation bloggers' convention (in Detroit, this year).
