Defeating Adolf Trump* isn't a longtime goal - it's the immediate goal.The goal in my opinion should be to provide a platform that is realistic and good for the country as whole that addresses the biggest areas of opportunity that the platform will work towards. If we are electing someone solely to defeat Trump (or anybody really) then it's probably not a good, long term goal. You could also end up electing someone that is just as bad if not worse because their platform was overlooked or the bad parts excused for the sake of winning the moment. The "other stuff" that you mentioned could very well be more important than winning one election in my personal opinion.The only goal is to defeat Trump*. We can worry about the other stuff later.I don’t know. I think that there are other candidates that appeal to more generations that don’t have the negative baggage that they have and also have fresher perspectives. I feel that the Democratic Party needs to look to the future with its candidates and not focus so much on established names of the past. Steer away from the far left socialist ideas and away from politicians with baggage and embrace the more moderate candidates that will appeal across the political aisle.Michael Bloomberg / Hillary Clinton 2020.
Sounds like a winning ticket to me! What do you think?
