Resident analyst and NBC4 reporter Tom Sherwood has long said D.C. won't win full voting rights without passion from its residents -- beyond polite memos and signs. He pressed Kimberly Perry, the new executive director of D.C. Vote, about her "rabble-rousing resume." "I don't know of any rights won through incrementalism," Sherwood said. Perry said many great things have been achieved because of incrementalism. She added that she has a history of activism for children's health, rights and education.
