Democrats are not in disarray

Jonathan Bernstein: “The standard reports on the Democratic disorder turned out to be out of place. Only 10 moderate liberals caused problems at this stage of the process. One reason is that there simply aren’t that many political differences within the Democratic House caucus. Another reason is that pundits are still hoping that Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s wing of the party will screw things up for everyone else, and it still hasn’t happened. “

“That’s mainly because the more liberal Democrats, who are in fact ideological outliers, seem to be generally pragmatic, not radical, in their approach to politics. That is, they are willing to negotiate the best deal rather than insisting on getting their way no matter what the consequences … By contrast, House Freedom Caucus Republicans and many others in both houses are radical without necessarily being atypical in the houses. politics, at least within his party. “

Another important reason is Nancy Pelosi. She is very well at your job.
