To The Democratic Party: Deliver!
Back in 2011, I wrote: “To win the first election you have to message. To win the next election you have to deliver.” The Democratic Party has not delivered for millions. The formative experiences of younger voters include the second Iraq war, the fraudulent taking of people's houses, and living in an economy that promises to leave most of them in poverty for the rest of their lives. If the Democratic Party wants them, the Democrats are going to have to credibly promise to deliver and then make good on the promises. Maybe with Sanders and Warren campaigning for Clinton, and working in the Senate, it is possible. But the Democrats will have to win back at least one house of Congress, and stifle their 1% wing.
