A Thought

I'm really enjoying (I am not enjoying) reading all the hot takes about how Democrats have to fundamentally remake the party, and all the coverage of Democrats who are inventing cool new strategies to do precisely that.

A particularly terrific (ahem) headline today described some Democrats strategizing to "un-Pelosi the party."


Here's a thought: If the Democrats want their base to believe their votes matter, Steps One, Two, and Three should be protecting (and expanding) voting rights, addressing gerrymandering, and eliminating the electoral college.

(And, while they're at it, making Election Day a national holiday, too.)

Let's see if the Democratic message "resonates" more once everyone can vote and the popular vote wins. Just a fucking thought.
