Cnn and the Democratic party have some really great minds and really moving the democratic in the right direction. Former communist Van Jones said that the days of Clinton and a moderate Democratic Party are over. I love to know who he considers the "the base" of the party.

The democrats now have the fewest number of state legislatures in their entire history and Republicans will enter the White House with both legislative branches in their control and their pick of a Supreme Court justice and the republicans now have the most state-elected lawmakers in office in 100 years and certain democrats want to double down on the losing ideas and move further left?

“You have to understand, I think that the Clinton days are over. This idea that we’re going to be this moderate party that’s going to move in this moderate direction, that’s going to throw blacks under the bus for criminal justice reform or for prison expansion is over. He added that Kamala Harris, a California Democrat who was just elected to the US Senate, is "unreal."

"She's going to be out there defending those DREAMer kids because they're a big part of her constituency," he said. "But she's got African-American roots. She's got Asian roots. She's female. She's tough. She's smart. She's going to become a big deal."

"You’re going to be judged based on your authentic commitment to the actual base of this party."

Jones, who was formally a part of President Barack Obama’s administration, went on to explain that he believes the politics of Sens. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen.-elect Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn) — which can be characterized as extremely progressive and socialistic — is the future of the Democratic Party.

If you mean the Republican party as defined by the Trump democrats and formerly ignored working class/middle class republicans, absolutely! The free traders, globalization, Neo-cons will be left in the cold, or so I hope.

Van Jones = racist

Who cares what he thinks unless they support racism. He is the voice of the party for anarchy. All he needs is a woman and a Muslim to make the trifecta of identity politics. Bingo.

That is all.

Their blackness isn't the problem.
