"No Labels is not about the center. It's not about moderate. It's not about left, right or center," Jon Cowan, who worked for the Clinton administration, told NPR. "It's about whether we can pressure our politicians, of both parties, to come together, to find common sense, common ground solutions and solve the countries problems."
Some are referring to the movement as the "Woodstock of democracy," with Independents, Republicans and Democrats jumping on the bandwagon against partisanship. The No Labels slogan reads "Not Left. Not Right. Forward." For his part Akon sings: "He's a Democrat/ He's Republican/ There's a fight and a race who's gonna win?/ Put your differences aside, 'man up' you can/ 'Cause there's way too many people sufferin'/ I wish they didn't have 'No Labels'/ There'd be more change with 'No Labels.'"
