For now, and especially after last week’s results, leading Dems believe they have a winning approach. They aim to motivate their base by endless bashing of Trump and assume the president will help them by continuing to split the GOP, which makes it nearly impossible for Congress to pass major legislation. They will also continue to play the Russia, Russia, Russia card.
In the short term, that might be sufficient. But 2020 is a long way off and the party is not likely to re-capture the White House without an appealing messenger and a forward-looking message of economic growth.
Which is why Brazile is right about the need for somebody new. In terms of both message and messenger, Clinton is a proven loser.
