One more time.

My fear is that people will focus on 'getting rid of Trump,' without considering what sort of leadership will replace him.

Hillary Part Deux? Or some other corporatist stooge from the GOP who runs a smoother, more polished con on the working class? Really? How neurotic is that.

The Democrats need to look at themselves and face the reasons for their failures. Not the party faithful so much, but the party leadership.

They did not just lose the Presidency. They lost almost everything, and it was theirs to lose. They were riding an enormous wave of popular support for meaningful reform in 2008, and they threw it all away. And for what. The Clinton foundation?

They must reform themselves and their organization first, and recommit themselves to the moral high ground and fundamental principles upon which their party had been based during the era of FDR.

And they must do that before they can begin to offer an attractive alternative to the fanaticism and extremism which in a large part they enabled with their 'lesser of two evils' approach to the very real problems of inequality and imbalances that they had an active hand in enabling.
