Listen up please.

What we really don't need are for progressives to begin the attacks upon life-long Dem who
have been in the trenches for decades making persistent progress for our benefit. And we don't need any Dems attacking our progressive brothers and sisters.

We need to begin to prepare a band of support for Joe as he enters into office in the face of horrific economic, social, moral and political decay in our nation. We need to take a deep breath and give him some space to maneuver around the scum that will still be in power until Jan 20. Yes, make you lists of grievances, idea, and priorities. But WRITE THEM DOWN and hand them directly to Joe or Kamala and stop the public bickering and hostile snipes at each other. We do not need to air our differences in public where the Trumpsters languish. It will only hurt us.

This is not group hugging or cum-by-ya statement either. It is a statement of political strategy and support and respect for each others feelings and thoughts. We will have 4 years to get this shit together but we won't be able to do it if we are wasting time griping and sniping at each other.
What we do with the POWER we have earned through hard-fought political battles will determine our legacy. Let it not be the legacy that our opponents, the indecent GOP has left smoldering in on the grounds of what is left of our government and our democracy.

I see some pretty unhelpful posts out there. Just give us a week to celebrate and Joe time to rest.
