View Diary: Hillary Clinton can only win with the Obama coalition (400 comments)

  •  The winning demographics for a Democratic ticket (6+ / 0-)

    to win in 2016 should likely be in place unless the ticket we nominate wildly deviates from its issues.

    Which I don't think is very likely to happen.

    A lot of voters will not have read the interview in The Atlantic.  Some percentage of them have never heard of that magazine.  

    I would expect degrees of satisfaction within our coalition but no high percentage of mutinies based on our nominated ticket.

    Individually we would prefer our own first-choices for the ticket; absent our first choice, I think most of us will support the ticket against whichever disastrous ticket the GOP nominates.

    •  "The winning demographics for a Democratic ticket (3+ / 0-)

      to win in 2016 should likely be in place unless the ticket we nominate wildly deviates from its issues."  Before or after the election?

      If you don't have a seat at the table, you're probably on the menu.

      •  Long before. Long before the weeks (0+ / 0-)

        leading up to the Iowa caucuses, in fact.  

        IMO they're in place now.

            a case on issues Democrats have long held high.  

            They've chosen to abnegate.  They've also chosen to let crazy people take control of their party.  They would likely have won Senate seats in Delaware, Indiana, and Missouri if they had not surrendered the controls to ideologues.

            I'm not seeing any scenario where we surrender this powerful electoral advantage.  

            Even less so after a Democratic win.
