Response to panader0 (Original post)

22. We need to make room for AOC and others like her.

She is capable of doing that elusive, ephemeral thing Masha Gessen keeps saying Democrats need to do in order to ensure our own survival: speak to people in a new language of aspiration.

And I'm betting Ezra Klein would agree.

We need people to identify with our party the way Republicans identify with their "party" and the way blue collar and working people used to identify with the Democratic party. (i.e., if you were in a union, who else would you vote for?) It goes beyond policy, but it doesn't exclude policy.
