i could see a nina turner type doing very well, someone actually charting a path forward. i just can’t see the huge numbers of people who’ve been energised by what’s going on atm settling for the shallowness of a hillary or obama style candidate for a long, long time. those days seem to be over for now.
like i’m struck by how the bernies and ninas, DSA, BLM, the left basically, haven’t stopped since november, have been campaigning, causing trouble, talking shit, doing whatever they can to fight trumpism, while the hillary types have just…i dunno…gone slowly insane on the internet and CNN, burbling about civility and russia while their brains leak out of their ears. people who weren’t old enough to vote last november but will be in 2020 will remember stuff like this, i think (hope!).
