4. Wise of you to use caps for Democratic Party


We will see how it goes with voters in Democratic primaries and caucuses, and the population at large. It's always easy to formulate generalizations on the basis of one's own personal daily observations and pretend one has the pulse of the nation better than everyone else. We will see, there are actual elections as opposed to the polls that the local political junkies cite every hour.

I meet and talk with a diverse set of people who are more completely described as Americans than Democrats - for some reason parties are not particularly liked nowadays, including by registered members - and they are NOT generally happy with the economy, or the state of politics, or the power of billionaires and corporations, or the role of money in politics, or their perception of corruption in the system, from the top down. If the Democratic party because of its structures and methods of exclusion chooses not to give them a candidate who speaks to these issues, but instead gives them the very epitome of the same old shit politics in dynastic form, watch out. Because the Republicans may give them a candidate who appears to speak to these issues.
