It is looking as if the Democrat Party will enter the 2020 election season more divided than ever before. Democrats are just giddy that a young woman who is a self-proclaimed “Democrat Socialist” (the impossible dream…doesn’t exist and will never) trounced a run of the mill liberal Democrat and took a Congressional seat. And, within a matter of days, California Democrats passed on longtime Dem Sen Feinstein for a more left leaning candidate. Over only a few years the Democrats have continued their shift to the left so that almost no Socialist, Communist, anti-American policy is off-limits. There is a big problem.
The Democrat Party has gone further left than the heart of their voters. In spite of the fact that Dems have registered about 10.000.000 new voters since 2016 I think they are in big time trouble for the mid-terms. Can they take control of either the House or the Senate? It is possible but not likely in my view. Democrats across the country who are family people, hard workers, raising their children, paying taxes, and planning for eventual retirement, are increasingly turned of by the likes of Maxine Waters and others who are emotional lighting bolts with no substance whatever. A political party whose biggest supporters can’t complete two sentences in a row without using the “F” word and or calling for violence does not have broad appeal to working Democrat families.
Who will be the Dem standard-bearer for 2020’s contest for the White House? Biden? McAwful? Alec Baldwin ? Enter Hillary Clinton. You might be thinking, she isn’t far enough left to qualify. She was even considered “hawkish” on foreign policy compared to Obama! I think she is showing signs of moving left quickly. She is making some outrageous statements, sounding more and more like the young skulls-full-of-mush you hear on college campuses across the country. Hillary can transform into what ever the people want. She can’t tell the truth very often, but that doesn’t matter. If she hits the trail spouting the catch phrases the Party has approved she will be popular.
One one hand Hillary seems like the least likely person to be nominated by the Democrats. She lost the race twice, she might lose again. But, who do they have who would be a better candidate?
I think she is their best shot to beat Trump. Oh how I hope I’m right. Beat Trump? Not likely. Unless Trump is caught kissing Putin or he knocks out a fake news reporter he will win with a larger margin than before, no matter who the opposing candidate is. Yesterday I read the Democrat Party Platform. The differences could not be more stark. It will be very easy to pick a side in 2020.
