2. How will we know, though?

We just elected one twice...who promised to do much of what you are talking about.

They can promise and give nice speeches, but where is there a Democrat that we could be assured would follow through on their promises. A Democrat who could run with a enough of a track record that could be scrutinized for clues that they would, live up to what they promise.

Dennis Kucinich (age and experience) is someone I would trust...but, there's no way he could be elected. And, if by some miracle he was elected by the people, I doubt that the Military, Industrial, Media Complex would allow him to Govern. The Clintons and Obama with their charismatic personalities and strong backing from MIC/Wall Street have pretty much sucked the air out of the space for anyone new to get traction. Any Dem Candidate without charisma wouldn't have a chance of inspiring Dems to get out to vote in the way they did for Obama.

Besides Hillary...who? And, I'm with you. I could not vote for her.
