Democratic party vacuum
Under Obama the Democratic party has lost its majorities in the House, Senate, Governors, and state legislatures. That opens up a lot of opportunities for the left wing of the Democratic party, and for emergent parties with an eye to the main chance. Bernie is right, it won't matter who is in the White House if we do not have a mass movement, which will include, amongst other things, hundreds of new lefty elected officials.
In other words, it is time to think about 2016 as a local election. So what is happening in your jurisdiction? Anything the Corrente community should be aware of?
