(CNN) –- MoveOn.org named a new executive director Tuesday to head up the daily operations of one of the largest liberal political action committees in the nation.
Former National Organizing Director Justin Ruben was appointed to the post, held until recently by Eli Pariser. Ruben, a long-time political organizer, aided in the establishment of the group’s field organizing program, and headed the 2006 “Call for Change” campaign that facilitated in the election of a Democratic congressional majority, and served as a supervisor for two years in MoveOn's issue campaigns.
"I am honored to take the helm of this organization at this critical moment," said Ruben. "Our five million members stand ready to fight for President Obama's progressive agenda of creating jobs, developing a new green economy, providing health care for all and ending the war in Iraq."
Eli Pariser, the committee’s former executive director, will transition to president of the board.
MoveOn.org supported Barack Obama’s White House bid, a first-time endorsement move for the PAC. Since the organization’s inception, the 527 turned 501(c)(4) organization has spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns and grassroots organizing.

Dude – you missed the memo. The One has met reality.
"progressive" is now PAC / corporate payback
"new green economy" is now just save the economy somehow
"health care for all" – a little busy for that, sorry
"ending the war in Iraq" is now kinda bring home some troops, expand WAR in Afghanistan, support Israel in Gaza WAR
So I suppose you are going to help feed the Millions. Promise them dreams you cannot fulfill... Just like Barack Obama,,, "Theres a Hole in the Bucket. Well fix it, with a straw Dear Eli...
New Idiot in Charge. Same Backwards Liberal Smear Machine. Clinton has not been president for over 8 years now. Why is this organization still around? Or is it they have a far greater agenda against America they wish to see through?
Why don't they just rename their organization what it really is: WeHateAmerica.org?
What are we moving on from now? Clinton's cigar mishap is old news.
Great! Hail the leader of the "Brown Shirts."
Advice for Move On.org: Move on.

World War Two. So Nieve CNN.... You can travel around the World at all speads...But it is the Creep you should ne aware of...
MoveOn should move on.
After seeing the way they treated General David Petraeus, I don't care to see or hear anything else that comes out of this cesspool.
They are a disgrace to this country.
It's time fo MoveON to apoglogize to General Petraeus!
What a joke arganization.
Good job, Eli. Thanks!!
MoveOn.org needs to move on - I'd say Cuba, North Korea, or Iran - either of these are a perfect fit for this liberal piece of garbage.
Conspicuously absent from the agenda– ending the war in Afghanistan. The left wing of MoveOn still wants out.
speaking of boobs...
I voted for OBAMA. But I do think the MSM played a very bad rule in trashing Sarah Palin. Looking back at the election, the MSM gave a free ride to Obama and Biden almost all the time.
When O ba m a said "there are 5-7 states in America ..." Did any news media report or repeat his funny mistake? When Biden said some s-t-u-p-i-d words (he always did), did any news coverage on them?
I got to know most of Ob a ma / Bi d en "funny comment / mistakes" from U-TUBE. But I got most of Sarah Palin's from our M AIN ST REAM ME DIA. The media lost its cre di bility and d- e -a-d. They lost their integrity and ethic standards. SAD words from a moderate DEM.
moveon.org stands for movein to my wallet, my life, my religion, my basic rights till I move out.
I wish move on would just move on (to another planet)!
I would rather be a liberal than a jackass conservative.
They have done nothing for America the last 8 years. Do Republicans ever take respnsibility for their screw ups?
I have never heard them!
MoveOn has forever labelled itself an Anti-American terrorist organization with it's General Betray Us comments. You can be sure that whatever they propose, the opposite is best for America. The moderator would surely prevent me from saying what I really think about this pack of traitors, vermin, and human excrement.
If ever you're not sure where you stand on a particular issue, just look up Moveon.org's stance on that issue and take the opposite stand and you'll never go wrong.
