A few thoughts on 2020 since all of my friends appear to be running which is good. First, no one should be trying to figure this all out before the voting starts.
2nd, we must reject the premise that this is a fight between moderates and progressives. We are going to nominate a progressive.
3rd, the progressive we nominate should also be capable of getting votes from moderates and even republicans. That wouldn’t make them less progressive, that would make them better.
4th, everyone who wants to run should run. Primaries can and do strengthen the Party. If you are a governor or a mayor or a senator or member of the house or TV star - and you think you can help the country, try it!
5th, we had a successful formula in 2018 which was to run on policy (mostly healthcare) and against corruption. We should do that again.
6th, our grassroots donors enabled the DCCC and others to be competitive and ultimately win by expanding the playing field. That must continue.
7th, litmus tests are mostly stupid. That’s it for now.
There are no circumstances under which I will run. Zero.
