Postcards from the Occupy DC Protest

The U.S. Capitol provided an arguably appropriate backdrop for the Occupy DC protesters who remained camped out across from the Wilson Building in downtown Washington, D.C., on Monday, Oct. 10.

Those with whom this reporter spoke had no expectations that Congress or President Barack Obama would take their message seriously--they contend that they continue to contribute to the country's ongoing economic malaise and increasing socioeconomic inequalities.

Do Occupy DC and other protests that have sprung up across the country in recent weeks provide a zeitgeist of angry American voters ahead of the 2012 elections?
