There is a divide in the Democratic Party now over the political path forward, between those who think that they should hammer the Republicans on healthcare and social programs, and those who think that the party should be all Putin all the time:
The Democratic Party is embroiled in a debate over where they should focus their efforts to win back political power: health care or Russia.
The party’s campaign committees and many of Democrats’ leading super PACs have spent virtually all their energy this year on shaming Republicans for their push to repeal Obamacare, an issue that clearly touches voters’ daily lives.
But on the other side of the split, American Bridge — the party’s outside-group research arm run by David Brock, the well-known Hillary Clinton ally — is among those convinced the investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials is one Democrats would be foolish to downplay or wait to take advantage of.
Of course David Brock would be at the center all of this and on the wrong side.
Ever since he switched sides, he has had this weird obsessive bromance with Hillary Clinton, and addressing real issues diminishes the polical future of both Hillary and her Evil Minions™.
This is a proxy for a number of other positions. Basically Brock and his ilk are placing their doing well over their doing good for the country.
It’s why DNC Chair Tom Perez got booed when he pushed Russian conspiracy theories instead of talking healthcare.
These are people who have no future in the Democratic Party.
The right strategy is to do BOTH.
No, because the subtext of the Russia bullshit is to preserve the power of the Clintonites.
Their time has passed, if it ever were there,
"These are people who have no future in the Democratic Party."
Not quite, these people are the reason the Democratic party has no future.
Good point Marku.
