54. It's great that Northam won, but there were points that were "divisive" in your OP

 

1) It's divisive to keep attacking Perriello after he lost and to minimize his role in helping elect Northam. If the guy isn't in the race any more, there's no good reason to keep doing talking points against him. It's not as though it was offensive that Perriello even ran. Perriello lost. Probably he deserved to lose. You don't need to keep going after him OR deny him any particular credit for helping Northam.

2) It's divisive (and a strawman) to imply that anyone claimed Democratic Socialists were the ONLY winners or did better than any other sort of Democrat. It was simply pointed out that they did as well as "moderates" and are a major part of the Democratic coalition. It doesn't hurt the party to give Democratic Socialists SOME bragging rights, and there aren't THAT many people who'd vote for us but ONLY if we make a big show of being just as much against the Left as we are against the Right.

Why would you do such a bitter OP when Tuesday was a big night and Northam WON?
