1. What if, and I know this might be a stretch...
but what if an elected official never claimed they were going to be 100% Democratic?

I know, shock of all shocks, right? But there are quite a few candidates that don't always agree with the party platform. And given what we call Republicans that always adhere to the party platform, that would simply make said Democrat "not a shill". Personally, I don't want to be part of the "party of shills".
