no more moderate Democrats. The “Blue Dogs” are just gone.
But with the announcement of Klain’s resignation as chief of staff after two years of hard service, one thing is clear. Expectations that he would be the “prime minister” who would shepherd the administration on a reasonable and moderate path were mistaken.
… Rather than being the expression of the normalcy and moderation of the Democratic Party that had governed successfully during the Clinton presidency, Biden and Klain’s White House signaled the death of that wing of their party.
“Moderate” Democrats just no longer exist. ANYONE who tells you that they are a “moderate Democrat” is just lying. They are covering their extremism with a cloak of “moderate.” And virtually all of them know it.
