More recently, he helped organize the 2002 rally in which Obama first spoke out against the Iraq War and now serves as the webmaster for Progressives for Obama where Tom Hayden (SDS Weatherman) is chief Editor. He is also School Technology Specialist for the Small Schools Work Shop. Small Schools Workshop was founded by Bill Ayers and Mike Klonsky (both SDS Weathermen). Obama served on the board of directors of William Ayers baby the Chicago Annenberg Challenge which in turn funded Small Schools Workshop. Obama and Ayers later served together as board members on the Woods Fund which also became a contributor to Small School Workshops.

Davidson and Tom Hayden take credit for launching the "Venceremos Brigade," where hundreds of young Americans were covertly transported to Cuba to help harvest sugar cane and then learn from the communist revolutionary leadership in Havana.
Davidson muses about how he could not support John Kerry for president because he was not progressive enough.

Now a days the Socialist and Communists hide behind the moniker of Progressives.
