The Democrats’ February Blues

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Democrats say they appeal to diversity, protect the average working American and are suspicious of the billionaire class. But the Democratic primary race so far reminds us that party rules favor rich, white candidates. The agendas voiced on the debate stages are not those of Middle America. The Democrats have nine months to unite around a centrist candidate. They have to give up on aborting Mr. Trump’s first term and instead offer a realistic counter-agenda to Mr. Trump’s booming economy and recalibration of foreign policy. Democrats also have to run their debates and primaries competently, fairly and professionally. Otherwise, 2020 will turn out to be a disaster for them.
