Despite the media love affair with progressive Democrats?
The actual Democratic Party and the General Voter is more in the center…
Bernie Sanders did Not prevail over Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote over Trump by millions….
BOTH Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have trailed Joe Biden from the start….
Pete Buttigieg is in the running in Iowa….
Why all this?
The last American Democratic President is issuing a warning about ‘dream promises that will never see the light of day and will NOT play well in a general election where the house’s of Congress and the Presidency are at stake….
Obama’s comments can be seen as DIRECT rebuttals to candidates Sanders and Warren, who, in fact , DO want to throw out the present systems and start anew with ‘progressive’ government based ways of doing things based on increased taxes….
Speaking before a room of wealthy liberal donors, Mr. Obama urged Democrats to remember the long, combative slog of his primary campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2008, arguing that the 16 month battle ultimately made him a stronger general election candidate.
“For those who get stressed about robust primaries, I just have to remind you I had a very robust primary,” he told the group of several hundred donors and organizational leaders in Washington. “I’m confident that at the end of the process we will have a candidate that has been tested.”
Yet, he also raised concerns about some of the liberal ideas being promoted by some candidates, citing health care and immigration as issues where the proposals may have gone further than public opinion.
