This is the big problem for the Democrats: choose an Establishment politician and you turn off the Progressive Left or move too far Left and you lose lots of moderates and independents. Campaign on reparations, sanctuary cities, higher gas taxes, socialism, and banning meat and you will push the working class further away. Create a nice big lane for a centrist candidate to siphon off votes and the Democrat will finish a distant third in a dozen states. That’s not to say Biden isn’t a flawed candidate, possibly not as bad as Hillary, but still flawed. It’s just that your Go Left prescription is not without serious risk it will eviscerate the party in large swathes of the country, destroy its evolution as a respectable alternative in the suburbs, and even depress turnout on the coasts. It’s quite a conundrum.
