The Democratic National Committee vote is coming up a week from now…..
It’s really between Rep. Ellison and Tom Perez….
Ellison is a Bernie sanders rep.
Perez is a Obama/Clinton Establishment rep.
Therein lies the problem….
The Democratic party is running in TWO different directions….
The main VOTING part or the party IS establishment …..
The main voice of the party these days is anti-establishment focused on stopping Trump in anyway possible….
The next chance for Democrats to actually gain elective power is next year….
Historically during off year midterm elections the party out of power does well…
The Democrats have a LOT of Senate seats to defend, and good many of them are states that Donald Trump wrestled votes from previous Obama voters…
While ON a WHOLE Trump’s approval numbers are dropping….
In some of those places he won last November he, and therefore Republicans are holding their own….
That’s not all….
While the Democratic base IS energized RIGHT NOW?
Will they be a year and a-half from now when the midterm votes are cast?
Will Democrats beat history and actually come out and VOTE?
How many of those protesting in the streets vote?
How many of these energized Democrats will be pissed at their OWN party elders who KNOW that they will HAVE TO make deals with Republicans for somethings NO MATTER how much their based doesn’t want them to?
Senate Minority Leader is the defacto leader of the Democrats right now….
The New York Democrat started off telling people he WOULD deal…
But THAT did NOT play well with the base, so he changed things up and has fought Trump on his cabinet picks….
It has held up the process…
But it has NOT stopped the most controversial picks from getting confirmed and by NOT making deals Schumer gets NOTHING in return , while the GOPer’s get what they want…
Barack Obama, who is actually responsible for some of this mess because he didn’t get hands dirty in wheeling and dealing with Congress to give cover to his party, is free on the daily grind….
Hillary Clinton, is healing after winning the vote and losing the election that she thought he she had…..Some people think she might even try another run if the party can’t find a young strong candidate ….
So we have the basic’s of the 2016 Democratic primary STILL out there for Democrats…
Who just lost, and have been losing since Obama got into office….
And could lose even BIGGER if they don’t get their shit together SOMEHOW and figure out how to bring some of those Obama voters….
And Bernie Sanders ain’t evn a Democrat….
