Democrats Should Disavow Clinton Super PAC, Not Protest Her Loss – Michael Saint, The Observer. 

Time to move on! 

The Democratic Party will fail unless it rejects Clintonism.

The Democratic Party rejected the grassroots strategies that enabled Obama‘s wins in 2008 and 2012 to their peril. Instead, Democrats lined up behind Clinton, the embodiment of the elitist status quo, and resorted to shady tactics to push her through the Democratic primaries against an unanticipated challenger, Sen Bernie Sanders. 

Clinton and her supporters have laid fault for her loss on everyone and everything including Sanders, Jill Stein, Susan Sarandon, millennials, the FBI, James Comey, Russia, Wikileaks, racist Trump supporters, stupid people, Bernie Bros and the media. In truth, the fact that Clinton won the popular vote shows that her campaign was unable to develop and implement a strategy for the swing states that cost her the presidency.

Now Clinton and her loyal followers—many who happen to be wealthy donors and celebrities—rally around the fact that she won the popular vote, along with every other excuse and scapegoat for her loss. Continuing to defend Clinton and rehabilitating her image by sensationalizing the reasons for her defeat allows the Democratic Party to avoid introspection, responsibility and accountability, thereby hamstringing the Trump resistance.

The Democratic Party has been and will continue to be utterly useless until it fully rejects Clintonism.
