The election of the DNC Chairperson is pivotal choice for the Democratic Party. After the drubbing Dems took all the way up & down the ballot in 2016, the choice *should* be an inflection point - where Dems realize that centrism (aka Clintonism) is a losing strategy from last century.
We need an actual, real deal progressive. An easily recognizable, polar opposite to Trump. Not someone else who has worked for the same banks and has the same questionable business interests as Trump and Clinton. Not more of the same old same old.
Progressives shouldn’t have to work so hard to get Democratic Party leaders to adopt progressive ideals, and Democratic Party leaders shouldn’t be so concerned with what conservative voters think.
