    publicize these truths about his strong moral character and incorporate them into a winning message that all (or at least most) Democrats can stand behind and live by themselves, I would gladly do away with my suggested alternative. I think his example is an exemplary one to follow, but unfortunately, that's largely because it's so extremely rare for someone to live so true to his ideals.

    I think ideally, progressives would unite around his example, and we wouldn't necessarily need a different platform in opposition to that posed by Republicans. I only suggested this because I think it is a path progressives haven't tried that could make headway with a group that otherwise would be inclined to vote Republican, but who appreciate the pragmatic results sound progressive policy results in.
