Point taken, sort of. But----
We don’t need to forget Trump. He is a problem, though not the problem. And it might be good to see that second table without Russian Investigation, which is just trumped-up Trump.
And the Republicans, also, are a problem. They are not the problem, and conceivably not the worst of it.
The Democratic Party is indeed divided, but roughly like so:
<----- Voters to the left-----------
-------officials to the right------->
The Democratic Party has purged itself of liberal, left, and progressive influences from its pro-labor and New Deal past. It has embraced a rough opposite:
- Pro NAFTA
- Pro TPP
- Pro war, almost in general
- Pro black opps
- Pro surveillance at home and abroad
- Pro WHO, IMF, Goldman-Sachs, George Soros, Koch, CIA, et alia. Pro corporatist and imperialist.
There is no moderate or left or liberal or progressive electoral option within the “major” parties.
