Honestly I feel like this is simply in the DNA of the Democratic Party. They're trying to peel away the 1/4 of Republicans who are sane because they absolutely do not want to do the work of figuring out how to communicate with the 1/3 of Americans who never vote.
More or less... it's Clinton era triangulation all over again. I believe they're going to be all smiles and promises to keep progressives from splitting off to form a left-populist third party until it's too late.
Then it'll be the same old scam - all must vote Dem no matter who because if you don't the insane people will run the show.
After a few times 'round this ferris wheel of despair I don't have much hope left this time will be anything different.
