    Yes Greenwald is a liberal, who use to work for the Guardian and Salon. Who is openly gay and use to vote Democrat. I don't know if he still does now.

    He started the Intercept and was one of the first talking about the Deep State.

    Then ya all don't need to hold him up as some expert on the dems.

    Unlike the republicans and their litmus tests for tee-peeers, dems have a big enough tent for the entire left to include Greenwald.

    Has anyone noticed the in-fighting to see who's going to be the new leader of the DNC? They are eating their young over there.


    Democrats Prepare to Pick a DNC Chair



    More than three months after a presidential election that sent shockwaves through their party, Democrats are finally getting ready to settle on a new leader.


    On Feb. 25, over 400 members of the Democratic National Committee, the party's official apparatus, will gather at a hotel in Atlanta to select their new chair. The contest for the position has served as a soul-searching exercise for the party, as it continues to grapple with lost voters and its new minority status in Washington and around the country.


    But in the intervening months, the party's liberal base has started to form its own movement, without direction from the establishment. The inauguration of Donald Trump sparked a drumbeat of protests around the country, and newly formed groups are mobilizing constituents to engage lawmakers at town halls and in district and congressional offices.


    Now, those vying to lead the party are trying to keep up with this newly activated base. But the position will be determined not by activists but by the 447-member committee that makes up the official party. Candidates have been traveling around the country and participating in four DNC-sponsored public regional forums to secure commitments from members, who will vote on their selection at the party's winter meeting two Saturdays from now. The winner will need 224 votes.


    The apparent frontrunners represent something of a proxy campaign between the Obama coalition in the form of former Labor Secretary Tom Perez and the newer Bernie Sanders wing of the party, represented by Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison. Meanwhile, a fresh-faced Midwestern mayor, Peter Buttigieg, is making headway in calling for a new voice to lead the party in its rebuilding......snip~

    Do you think @nic34 will answer the actual question I asked? I'm betting on no.

    Tahu: So, one has to be a Democrat to know that the Democratic Party is in shambles?

    Me: Are Gays that used to vote for Dems experts?


    Do you think @
    Tahuyaman can answer that?

    Some may be experts and some may not. Some may have expertise in many areas and some may not.

    The world isn't a "one size gets all" scenario.

    Are you done?

    The GOP needs to fix its own problems. People are turning independent. Especially the younger generations.

    The Dems will take themselves out.
