We must not become complacent about Biden's victory over Trump until it is signed, sealed and delivered. That said, we also must not be complacent about rising to the massive challenges we will face post-election. We need Dems in Congress who will fight for change.
Trump is an existential threat to the US and he must be removed. So are McConnell and the GOP leaders on the Hill. But go-along get-along let's-just-turn-back-the-clock Compromise 'R Us Dems also pose a major threat in a country facing grave challenges. New thinking is needed.
The British would call the problem Dems the wets--meaning soft, diluted, not strong. We need to purge the wets where possible and ensure that leaders are a different breed altogether--visionary, strong, committed to winning.
