How the Democratic leadership is sabotaging the Democratic Party. Shortsighted centrism empowers republicans while implementing bad policy. Triangulation backfires, as with immigration or misses opportunities, as with the ACA, SS benefit cuts, gay marriage. Policy and political concerns would be much more successful if widely popular, effective polices were adopted. Instead, we get Rahm's memo.
