there is a big difference between taking oil company money and effectively being a 50s R (rather than a crazy RWR like now) and being an actual D - see Frackenlooper.

There is a big difference between giving away our civil rights and protecting them. talk to Feinstein and Pelosi.

We may need every D vote to get rid of Trump but we don't need internal sellouts anymore than we need Rom-Nuts hypocrisy about Dump (pretending to hate Dump for political convenience while he still votes for everything put out and leading the charge to disembowel Social Security and the rest of the New Deal).

FDR, Truman, LBJ (barring Vietnam) and many others then and since proved you *can* have principles, be progressive and get elected and get things DONE. Howard Dean also proved it with the 50-state-strategy. Sanders and EW have also proved it. Katie Porter, AOC and the rest of The Squad prove it every day. Merkley, Wyden, Feingold, Durbin and Markey prove it all the time.

[bleep] DINO corporate sellouts and stick by our principles - we don't have to be ashamed or afraid of anything!
