43. OK...

The aforementioned Manchin and Sinema are not alone in their resistance to any sort of decent minimum wage, raising taxes on the rich, and redistribution of wealth.

I agree the current Congress of Democrats is the best and most progressive in 40 years, but there are countless examples of them losing their way. Here's a great summary article, but the Internet is your friend if you need more specifics. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/nov/10/democrats-working-class-americans-us-election

Clinton didn't campaign hard in the swing states she assumed she had in the bag, she didn't challenge Trump as the populist by speaking to economic issues that affected many Americans. Sure, her platform was great, she was eminently qualified and would have been a great President, but she didn't push when she needed to. She certainly wasn't helped by people like Turner who didn't realize the imperative of resisting Trump at all costs. Fortunately, Biden did a lot better at all that and got he support he needed to win.

Upset about Third Way? Not me. I just recognize them for what they are: opposed to any redistribution of wealth. Accordingly, I ignore their opinions.

I don't believe in any conspiracy theories surrounding the DNC.

*I* don't need good guys and bad guys. I think there is room for Manchin and Turner in this party.
