17. It is the reaching out to include the enemy that retards any hope of
progress. By including them and their reactionary/conservative views that enables the politicians to pander to them and ignore real Democrats.

Why would you want to water down and compromise your views to "maybe" accomodate someone who represents everything we should be fighting against?
