In case you don’t know, next time the Democrats nominate a presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders is going to be front and center, making sure he is a progressive. Or at least that he (Sanders) be heard.
I don’t have a cite. But that is what Sanders said last year, with the nomination of Joe Biden.
Up until now the Democrats have been playing the moderate card. Dukakis was their last truly liberal nominee.
What I like about moderate nominees is they’re strong on defense. (I’ve been a lifelong Democrat. And I support things like gay marriage. But I also believe in a strong defense.)
But has the time come to play the liberal card again? What’s the worst that could happen? And would it in fact play better to the younger base anyway?
