the 2 tweets above are why.
we can complain all we want on here in our insulated left of center online community.
but we arent a progressive nation. and the electorate (the people who actually cast votes) is even less left than that.
the dem path to victory is pretty clear. in va 2017/2019, ky/pa 2019 and nationwide 2018 (especially tx/ga/az)...college educated voters in the suburbs swung big towards dems. those folks could likely abandon the party in the event of a further left nominee.
warren is my horse. but we gotta acknowledge the potential for disaster in nominating a candidate like that (mcgovern 1984). theres a reason why she is barely above water in her own (solid blue) state while the *moderate* republican governor is above 70% approval.
