    I’m not sure why other liberal white men view a modestly unpopular candidate barely losing a presidential election while still being millions of votes ahead in the popular vote is in any way, shape, or form a decent reason to throw away one of the most essential elements of the liberal coalition in this country.

    Like aside from the amorality of considering minority rights disposable, from a pragmatic position, the democratic party lives and dies on being a diverse coalition party. Throwing that away to appeal to the same racists who are pretty much ideologically locked in and consistently vote republican seems like the dumbest idea in the world.

      Well, most of the people mentioned are Third Wayers. They backed Clinton, and they’re more afraid of someone saying the minimum wage should be higher than they are of, well, Donald Trump.

      We really need to ditch the white country club class. You know, the Clintons.

      The whole idea there was one reason we lost that everyone else now needs to address seems kind of inane. It’s so faux intellectual but generally completely fails to speak to the actual data and more to the author’s biases.
