28. So here's the real deal - will the Democrats be safer running a Conservadem campaign or something

 

more Progressive and Populist, like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren might run?

I say the Progressive/Populist thing is the way.

Why is it so hard for Hillary supporters to get up on arms and convince your own candidate that this is the truth? Do you know think she could use a little urging from her supporters?

I sure do.

The dream that seems so unlikely but so cool to me is that Hillary runs and governs differently than Bill (bigtime feminist dream here, don't you think). I mean, why should she do things the same? She seizes on the opportunity of the moment, solidifying her more Progressive stances in all areas, including money issues. When she needs money to run her campaign, she can take a note or two out of Bernie's playbook, if the corporate donors get their noses out of joint. She unifies the party, getting rid of all this internecine unnecessary bloodshed, returns the Democratic Party to being clearly a "party of the People" and its Democratic roots, inspires and invigorates everybody and wins two terms easily.

That's my dream. Could it become true? Could Hillary supporters help it to come true? Especially if, as you say, you really don't have some big disagreement with the Liberal/Progressive causes that Bernie fights for.
