    Look at the corporate Democrat bloodbath we just witnessed.

    Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp both got annihilated by like 15 pts. Bredesen got stomped after his idiotic attempts to appease Republicans. Tester performed much much better running on populist left messaging. Many progressives won (as well as lost races by under 5 pts in places thought untouchable).

    Manchin is the only R-lite Dem who won. The rest.... wake up and realize that pushing towards the middle is a terrible strategy.

    Makes me wonder if Andrew Gillum hadn't submitted to his party handlers and allowed Hillary fucking Clinton to campaign with him, as well as other signs of progressive insincerity had a dampening effect on his support?!

    Thoughts? Am I wrong? Thanks in advance to all the smart guys in here.

    As I wrote up in the Midterm thread, I think you're really wrong.

    Very possible in 2032. She'll have to do a lot correctly to get aimed in that direction, but it's not hard to game out where she'd be in a really good position by 2030 to get her committee rolling, by 2031 have oodles of cash in the bank, and then win and survive the bloodbath that will likely be the Democratic primary.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    Bernie Sanders at 80 years-old still kicks ass.

    Wow, this thread is such a trip 4 years later. I'm so much less optimistic today.

    I'm glad to see you're digging The Rational National! He's got consistently strong takes.

    This clip of Krystal Ball on Bill Maher was also fantastic. She lays out how popular progressive legislation is, as Biden's popularity was highest at the beginning of his term, when he made bold promises, vs his current numbers in the toilet now that he's refusing to do anything.

    He's willingly leading the party to slaughter by abdicating responsibility. Do anything! Take marijuana off the schedule 1 drug list and free marijuana related offenders! Tackle student debt! C'MON, MAN!!!

    Why is the Fed able to bankroll an investor class payoff to halt the stock market losses in the Covid recession, but eliminating student debt is viewed as a giveaway to the working class? Perhaps because of pieces of shit like Nancy Pelosi have profited hundreds of millions off insider trading and refuse to address it? Just a stab in the dark there.

    Larry David was once being heckled, long before any success. Heckler says "I'm taking my dog over to fuck your mother, weekly." Larry responds "I hate to tell you this, but your dog isn't liking it."
