I am coming around to the view that the Democrats should nominate a non-Trump, not a leftwing version of Trump.
In other words, we should pick a person who
- projects an image of confidence and gravitas, and who is not easily rattled
- has appropriate experience and credentials
- will advance those parts of the progressive agenda that are supported by large majorities, but who
- will not press those parts of the progressive agenda that are politically unpopular.
But, But, But …
… you say. Will your proposed nominee, Amhay Andwichsay. be able to “stand next to Trump on the stage”?
Read my next post to find out how to do that very thing.
