I present to you the Democratic Party….
Democrats have a ‘Big Tent’….
Their leaders have to deal with the different factions in the tent…
Since the primaries that has been static between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren’s Progressives ….
The Progressives lost…
Joe Biden IS the Democratic Presidential candidate…
And he’s leading Donald Trump across the board right now….
He is NOT gonna change directions a little more than a month out from Election Day …
With Supreme Court Justice Gingburg’s passing?
The Republicans have displayed naked power in moving to place a conservative judge in the Supreme Court seat…
Angry with the move?
There have been calls for a Joe Biden President to immediately move to appoint 4 more liberal judges to checkmate the upcoming 6-3 ‘Right’ leaning high court with the replacement confirmation by a majority Republican Senate…
Moderate Democrats in places where Donald Trump is NOT a dirty word do NOT want Biden or Pelosi to move so fast….
The moderates , who Pelosi and Biden NEED to hold majorities in the House and maybe the Senate hopefully are afraid that strong moves to the left by their party will endanger their seats in Congress….
Already Pelosi has backed down from some of her demands on the just passed spending bill to help the moderate party members …
All this goes to prove that despite all the promises Joe Biden is making to keep the progressive’s in his party happy?
Few will see the light of day….
Some Democrats are eager to see Biden tap into the anger over what they view as an eleventh-hour power grab by Republicans.
“Biden needs to show he understands that traditional tactics and the politics of goodwill no longer get the job done, and that he’s willing to play hardball,” said Democratic strategist Christy Setzer. “From Gore v. Bush on, Democrats have allowed ourselves to be outmaneuvered by appealing to honesty and fairness and quaint concepts like ‘count every vote’ and expecting — despite all past precedent — that the other side can be won over. They can’t. Stop trying.”
But some Democrats are worried there would be political consequences for Biden if he were to announce his support for proposals to expand the Supreme Court.
The Democratic nominee made it through the party’s primary by refusing to move too far to the left.
Biden is polling strong at the moment with suburban women, seniors and independents, as well as in battleground states across the Midwest, including Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
“Biden is a centrist,” said former Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.), who served for nearly two decades with Biden in the upper chamber. “Proposing to expand the Supreme Court just prior to the election is bad politics and bad governance. As hypocritical as it is for Republicans to do what they’re doing, I just don’t think this would help Democrats at the ballot box. It won’t help them win over suburban Republicans or independents, and if Biden is going to win big, that’s where it’s going to come from.”
Democrats say Biden’s approach has so far been the right one….
