    Nice establishment view. Doesn’t mention the progressives at all and how they were snubbed once again. Tom Perez represents the party that put Clinton up when she was clearly going to lose. And wasted billions of dollars doing so all the while Bernie would have won.

    “The reality is, Perez is a path-breaker in his own right, becoming the first Latino to lead the Democratic party. ”
    Is this the author’s mindset or is the pragmatists wing of the Democratic Party back to the failed strategy of “identity politics”?

    Does the establishment wing of the Democratic party like being in the political dugout!?

    A permanent rump party??

    The optics are bad. Looks like ‘score’ for the Obama/Hillary pragmatists and ‘no score’ but a nod to the Sanders/ Ellison progressives:

    Rinse, Repeat.

    If the sane and moral minority of the republican party can stir up the same level of energy the corrupted members of their party mustered to undermine Clinton and emasculate Obama, Trump should be impeachable by law. If that happens it will give the Democrats the bump they so badly need to get a leg up on the republicans before 2020.

    I’m convinced that the self-defeating Democrats can’t help themselves to succeed over the republicans without the republicans attacking their own party.

    This hypothesis is known by those establishment pukes who now choose to turn a blind eye away from the thug who sits behind the desk of POTUS

    If the Democratic Party doesn’t move more to the center instead of further left, they will lose more seats in the next election. The party of Clinton and Obama has lost 1000 seats in state and federal legislatures in the past 8 years. I don’t see how promoting Socialism instead of Democracy will ever help the Democratic Party. Americans have always worked hard for their families and will continue to do so. Americans have always and will continue to help those that can’t help their selves. However, Americans balk at being forced to pay for housing, education, medical care, for those that refuse to help their selves.

    Time for a new party. The People’s party time has come!
