"Here comes the truth"
The current generation of Democrats has lost the last six congressional elections by finessing the truth, compromising the truth, triangulating the truth, and generally avoiding the truth as though it had leprosy. Truman’s truth was that Republicans are toxic for America. Six decades later nothing has changed except the Democratic willingness to make the case.
I couldn't agree more with Podvin about what the Democratic Party should be doing. But for Progressives to take over the Democratic Party from the Bidens, Liebermans and Clintons will be a long row to hoe.
