I'm glad that people aren't allowed to continue fighting the last primary on DU

that's an important rule. I'm sure that if people were doing that, those posts would be flagged and removed.

9. they don't understand that Republicans are after Sanders seat and Warrens seat. If WE don't fight fo

we don't fight for our Senators and Congress people Republicans will take their positions and Ds will have no one, no 'good guys' in elected government.

6. whatever makes you 'glad'. I wish we had President Clinton & VP Sanders today :P

The primary could have been exactly what both Sanders and Clinton said, "Let the voters decide" who will run in general election. That's exactly what they both said.

They could have carried that a step further.. "Let the voters decide-The primary winner will run as President, second in primary will be Vice President." Wouldn't that have been a veryyy exciting primary

That team would have worked together very well as President & VP, that team would be President/VP today. I think Hillary would have still won the primary but it would have been a very close FRIENDLY squeaker primary

8. I am sick to death to read comment after comment

dividing the Democratic party, as if the term 'herding cats' used to mean we were all on one page before Bernie????

When DIDN'T we have both anti abortion and pro choice candidates...I say let's get Democrats IN, THEN go for purity...

I don't think liberal Democrats were replaced by tea party candidates...they went after other conservatives who did not meet their 'purity' test.

GET EM IN FIRST!

13. No. Liberal Democrats were replaced...

Look at Feingold. The problem is you can't call for the most progressive Democratic Party in history and then make exceptions for those you like for some reason that are anti-choice as in Nebraska. I am all for the big tent personally and always vote for the candidate with the 'D' next to his name, but I would not endorse an anti-choice candidate. I would not attend a rally for such a candidate. However, if I lived in the district, I would vote for this candidate over a GOP type always.

know during all the infighting on DU that everyone here supported her so in the end we are all on the same side.

37. What you "want."

Is curious since you seem to have a lot of Dem spirit.

Schumer and Perez' focus and imploring call to unite should be followed only by those who aren't the least bit uncomfortable with it, apparently.

I've never seen that happen before. I thought I must have hit "back" or something. How many times can a post be alerted on if it's already survived a jury?

28. I'm glad that people aren't allowed to continue fighting Democrats by calling them

neoliberals, third-way, corporatist puppets suckling at the corporate teat of our corporate overlords, centrists, status quo, establishment, don't care about the middle/working class, something about Glass Stegall, addicts, trolls, and all sorts of offensive lies. That's an important rule. I'm sure if people were doing that, those posts would be flagged and removed. You see, it's like an addiction. When a friend is addicted to something that is harmful to them the people who love that person gently encourage them to wean them off of that harmful substance.

It isn't about re-litigating the primaries. It's about sustaining and strengthening the divisions.
