    The 'issues' become part of the 'platform'.

    The 'issues' are already, in a loose, unsatisfactory de facto way, part of the Dem political configuration.  Practical-minded, realpolitik-leaning 'issues' people know that (as a general way of speaking) voting for Dems provides the only (sometimes slim) hope that their issue will make political headway.

    Ultra-purists on an will sniff haughtily and put themselves above the fray by either not voting at all or making a protest vote for this season's cool kid.  In their own way, they are as unreachable as hardcore RightWingers.
