One of the matters which can not be overlooked is the future of the Democratic Party, while the left is continuously serving as a balance to the president, they still need to ensure that they do not become overwhelmed by the scandals and devote a good deal of time to re-building the party. November was a big blow to the Democrats, and while becoming a block to some of the mayhem, and seeking investigations are all needed cause’s the only way they will be able to truly defeat a lot of these matters is by building themselves back up again. Let’s not forget that the GOP currently controls the White House, House, Senate, and the majority of governorships around the nation. Significant change is not going to occur with a super-majority in place. The fight is already beginning and there are a number of major decisions on the horizon which the party needs to place their attention to.
Who Will Lead the DNC
Like any sports team, you want a coach/manager in place before deciding the strategy, and this is going to be the next big interparty matter which will be taking shape. The image of the party took a hit when Debbie Wasserman-Shultz was linked to favoring Hillary Clinton, but let’s be honest the convention she organized was well put together, and this ordeal is in the past. Leading candidates appear to be Keith Ellison Rep. from Minnesota and Tom Perez the Labor Secretary under President Obama. Finding a candidate who will unite the party is a must. However, this party needs someone who will inspire the party and votes alike. They will have a challenge ahead of themselves, but there appears to be a split in support between the top two candidates support. One of the things the new chairperson will need to implement is first and foremost a spine in the backs of the party. No longer can this party afford to back down on the fight. It needs to stand strong and focus on the people and beings the party of the people. Secondly, another major challenge will be developing a winning culture this starts with reconnecting with the people. They need to connect to the people. One significant benefit this incoming chair will have is momentum. They need to harness this momentum they are getting from rallies, town halls, and The Resistance and propel them to victories now and in the future.
Win A Seat Back in the House Now
Democrats have an opportunity to gain a seat in the house coming up in Georgia and they will need to allocate resources to a seat which a couple years ago was in a safe red district. If they pass on this chance to win Tom Price’s seat in Georgia then they are not getting the point. Trump only won this district by 1.5 points. There is a window to begin flipping red districts. Each seat makes it more likely they can regain control of the House at a minimum in 2018.
Wrapping it Up
There is a lot happening in this nation right now, but the Democrats if they have any hope rebounding they need to take the opportunities they have. They have to show the are the party of the people and reconnect with them. They need to heal the wounds of the people which may have felt alienated by them. Likewise, will need to harness the energy being generated by The Resistance. Their choices need to be decisive, strong, and well planned. There is a window of oppertunity for them and they have to seize it while continuing to fight for the ACA, investigating Russian interferance, and maintaining a policy that benefits this nation.
