They should do this because it's the right thing to do. But sometimes doing what's right can also been the beneficial thing for you to do. Because while the Democrats should avoid bringing politics into this crisis, politics is always going to be there in the background. The Democrats should be out there working to handle this crisis in the most responsible and effective manner. And the Trump administration can handle it as it will. Then in November, the voters can decide who they want to be in charge for the next four years.

The Democrats should take this as an opportunity to demonstrate that they are the better party and why letting the better party run the country is important.
As far as I can tell, the Democrats are NOT making an issue out of this and they are doing exactly what you say at the end of your post. Hell, they don't NEED to make an issue. It's as plain as the orange nose on trump's face. In spite of his umpty-umpth attempt to blame Obama:

Trump ties Obama to CDC's 'inadequate' testing
Quote:
President Trump on Friday again claimed that his response to the coronavirus was hindered by the Obama administration, which left office three years ago.

Mr. Trump attacked former President Barack Obama, who served with Mr. Trump’s likely Democratic challenger, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., in two posts on Twitter.

“For decades the @CDCgov looked at, and studied, its testing system, but did nothing about it,” Mr. Trump wrote. “It would always be inadequate and slow for a large scale pandemic, but a pandemic would never happen, they hoped. President Obama made changes that only complicated things further.

“Their response to H1N1 Swine Flu was a full scale disaster, with thousands dying, and nothing meaningful done to fix the testing problem, until now,” he continued. “The changes have been made and testing will soon happen on a very large scale basis. All Red Tape has been cut, ready to go!” he wrote.
....
Everything with him is always "just about to happen," "just down the pike," and it will always be the bestest ever!

Fuck, the man doesn't need any help bringing himself down.
