Last I heard there was no agreement on the reasons why they lost so big. The far left want to push the party further left, a few moderates want to back off a skosh. One thing is sure: It’s not their fault. It’s always someone else’s fault.
I would put a significant part of the blame on three people. Barack Obama who never campaigned for anyone who won, Hillary Clinton who was and is completely unlikable but was their nominee, and Bernie Sanders who split the party. I doubt he will be invited, though.
This is just another perk of being a politician. A nice room, good food and drink, and a lot of news people to make you feel good and to give you face time.
