The Now and Future Democrats


For John, BLUFThe "Liberals" need to focus on Citizenship as a unifying theme, not their individual identities.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Here is the Sub-headline:
Liberals should reject the divisive, zero-sum politics of identity and find their way back to a unifying vision of the common good
I found this 11 August 2017 Wall Street Journal article on Drudge and believe the author, Dr. Mark Lilla, professor of the humanities at Columbia University, is spot on. It is a little long, but it is insightful.

And, it talks about what might prevent Democrats from winning the House and Senate in 2018.

I wonder if the Democrats are hoping that there will be some cataclysmic event, brought on by Donald Trump, that will allow them to say (1) see, I told you so, and (2) vote for us because we are all calm middle of the road people (Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, DWS, Chuck Schumer and Conn's Senator Richard Blumenthal aside).

I am thinking 2018 should be an interesting year, locally and nationally.

Hat tip to the Drudge Report.
