The Democratic Party Reborn

The Blue Dogs are dead! The Democratic Party is changing dramatically. It is becoming more unified, more liberal, more focused, and way more urban. That’s the conclusion, anyway, of CNN Politics’ senior analyst Ronald Brownstein. He argues that the Democratic Party used to be composed of many different groups–rural and small town voters, conservatives, even…

Is Biden History? And Harris Inevitable?

Interesting op-ed on the Washington Post site recently: Sorry, Mr. Vice President, it’s Harris’s race to lose in 2020 by Hugh Hewitt. In it, Mr. Hewitt argues that Joe Biden is a non-starter for the 2020 election. The former VP is just too compromised, he argues.  The Democratic nominee, he concludes, will almost certainly be…

I foresee one of two things then happening…

Petition:Ben & Jerry Are Back (And Bernie’s Got ‘Em)

We don’t normally mention petitions on LR net, but this one is kind of fun. Ben and Jerry, the ice cream guys (whose products have probably done more to cure depression than all the Prozac on the planet) are urging Bernie Sanders to run for president in 2020. Here at the magazine, we’re sort of…

What is Democratic Socialism?

I know there are still many people out there that don’t fully understand democratic socialism. In a nutshell, a democratic socialist is a democrat with progressive values.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in June on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert said this about democratic socialism, “I believe that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no person…
