    I think Trump shows us one thing. A President can lead and push an agenda. Obama didn't do that at all in a progressive direction.

    And with the question you ask, how did being moderate pan out for them? We know. It was bad. So the question I wonder is how would progressive have panned out for them. I know as an Obama voter, I was completely disillusioned with him and the Democrats after those first two years.

    I gave the evidence of the skyrocketing of AOC from a waitress to national political star.

    I would love for some research to be done. But I think one can tell that AOC has spiraled to national stardom from negative attention, not positive exposure. So at this point, it's just a hypothesis.

    The one thing people didn't learn regarding Trump and is repeating itself with AOC.

    When you consider a politician stupid, it actually empowers them to be crafty. I think Trump would love for you to think he is stupid.

    When you constantly attack a politician, you actually give them more followers. It's strange, but the Streisand Effect is real, especially in this Internet era.

    The biggest weapon in someone's arsenal is to actually just talk about what they are for. Not attack their opponent and give them press. The rules have changed.

    I'm late replying. But I think it is the other way. They didn't pass the progressive agenda people wanted, so the progressives didn't bother to go and vote.

    Could it be possible that a leak of a white nationalist plot to keep Steve King in office is actually done to keep Steve King out of office?

    Thanks. Maybe I was just in a moldable moment tonight. Who knows. But I think I've totally changed my mind, which seems weird.

    I was hoping that someone pointed this out. We are welcoming socialist ideas because the current system has failed so many.

    Well, I live in a battleground state. I'm willing to accept that I may be biased because of that. And I need to reevaluate this.

    I opened this up to recommend that very same book. An absolutely wonderful manga. I actually haven't seen the anime yet. Still need to do that.

    So a losing program got a new coach. He inherited only three players. Now they are having one of their best years ever. I found the article very inspirational too.
