No, the Democratic Party is not trying to woo its left flank back. Now that they’re so thoroughly out of power, they’re refraining from giving the finger to unions, environmentalists, socialists, etc.–but they aren’t even pretending to be interested in coming together with the Sanders people. I think they actually don’t much care that their choices have cost them the White House, both Houses of Congress, most governorships, and most statehouses. What matters is continuing to suck money from their sugar daddies. They think they can count on the awfulness of the Trump regime to give them at least some returns in 2018 or 2020…and indeed there will be plenty of awful, very little of which will effect the extremely comfortable people running the DNC. But it’s entirely possible that the total control the Republican Tea Party now has, coupled with the extremist agenda of the power players at the helm like Adolf Bannon, will make it impossible for any other party to win in 2018, or even do so much damage through reckless foreign policv that there won’t be another election. Timne for anyone serious about trying to mitigate the collapse to abandon the Democrats for good, and focus most of our energy on local work. The election game is rigged.
