I want to support a candidate who understands how difficult it is to actually pass programs in the Congress, but who has done it repeatedly, and who understands what is politically possible.
I do not want to support candidates who engage in virtue-signaling and magical thinking about how the Congress will fall at their feet and magically pass their elaborate plans without difficulty.
This is not a year to stage a primary contest that features purity tests, condemnations of candidates for political incorrectness, stoking smug moral superiority for supporting idealistic programs that cannot pass, and consequences that include the re-election of a literal racist autocrat who opposes democracy and the rule of law.
Not this year.
Watch what he does, not what he says. What Democrat is he afraid to run against because he knows he will lose?
Well, which Democrat is he targeting with illegal extortion schemes involving taxpayer money and foreign governments?
