    is the idea that the Dems either don't care if the Left votes for them, or alternately, they believe that the Left will vote for them no matter what they do.

    As I indicated above, either is a possibility but do you think these are accurate assumptions?

    Or is that the Dems don't care enough about winning future elections that they're uninterested in keeping the coalition that makes winning possible intact?

    Nothing human is alien to me.

      The Democratic Party believes the "left" will vote for them because the have nowhere else to go. As for your last paragraph,I believe the Dem Party isn't uninterested but rather is short-sighted about what it is going to take to keep that coalition intact.
