Some legitimately good advice for Democrats looking to the future. The Dems right now are the party of corporatism (though there’s plenty in the GOP too of course). The Clintons are a big reason why this is. The Democratic Party has a chance to clean house a bit here. Trump may have actually done the Democrats a favor.

Politico also reported that, rather than focus on serving the working and middle class, Democrats are holding a closed-door meeting with wealthy Democratic Partydonors, including billionaire George Soros. They’re planning the Democratic Party’s strategy moving forward, once again abandoning voters’ interests in favor of donors. The answers the Democratic Party is looking for won’t be found in providing further influence for millionaires and billionaires, yet that’s where Warren, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and the likely new DNC chair Rep. Keith Ellison will be making appearances. The three day meeting is being hosted by the Democracy Alliance, an elite Democratic finance circle which has significantly influenced institutions on the left and played a major role in propping up Clinton’s candidacy. The excessive power wealthy donors wield inside the Democratic Party is a key reason why Clinton lost and voters have left. But establishment Democrats appear more than willing to repeat their same mistakes over again.
These same establishment Democrats accepted the polls and assurances from pundits in the mainstream media who were claiming Clinton had a substantial lead, and her election was and always has been inevitable. “It’s her turn” had been the mantra of the elitist status quo since Clinton left the State Department in 2013.
