Not a retweet here....this is what our "leader" is busy doing. 

Let me guess...it's an allegory for the speed at which the virus has spread vs. how it would have spread with a leader?

cow-towing to silly extremes (either right of left) won't do it for now

The problem is in saying people who are solidly democrat are extremist, particularly using rather incendiary labels. I mean Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, Clinton, Obama, were pretty solid democrats but hardly Maoists. I maintain that the "establishment" democrats are what used to be called moderate republicans. I believe this is particularly true of Biden and Hillary before him.

Conflating the centre of the left-right continuum with independence is a mistake IMO. Remember Bernie is an independent. Actually there are two types of independent: 1) those whose politics don't align with either of the major parties, and 2) people whose politics sometimes align with one, sometime with the other *and* actually change their votes, based on the issues of the day. So some independents are going to vote democrat when push comes to shove, some will vote republican, some will vote 3rd party no matter what, and some will mix it up. There are also some democrats and republicans who won't vote for their party's candidate in some cases. I have conservative american friends who will not be voting for trump.

But what do you consider a bad situation that dems are trying to make the best of?

Whole lotta law and order on both sides of the aisle.  Burning buildings will do that.  There is a lot of interest to protect and they are going to do it. If you like social justice, research the history and platform of ALL the candidates.   Who knows maybe you will end up voting for a woman President or something.

That was what went wrong through this presidential term. All the folks who disagreed ran away, leaving him to do whatever he wanted, no matter how wrong (nepotism, self-serving, improper, un-American, even illegal) without significant pushback.

Shame on those who quit, or who sat idly by while the wheels came off. And, even if you don’t agree that the wheels came off, you can possibly get behind the idea that governance is a dance between opposing ideas who find common ground so that the nation - not one party - moves towards a better life.
