Revitalizing the Democratic Party

By Bernie Sanders
11/6/2017 at 21:18:59

What the recently released book excerpt from former interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile made clear is that unless we get our act together, we are not going to be effective in either taking on Donald Trump or in stopping the extremist right-wing Republican agenda. We have to re-establish faith with the American people that in fact we can make positive changes in this country through a fair and transparent political process that reflects the will of voters across this country.

In order to do that, we need to rethink and rebuild the Democratic Party. We need a Democratic Party that opens its doors to new people, new energy and new ideas. We need a Democratic Party that is truly a grassroots party, where decisions are made from the bottom up, not from the top down. We need a Democratic Party which becomes the political home of the working people and young people of this country, black and white, Latino and Asian and Native American … all Americans.




LOL. Good one, Erica.


On Point (WBUR) with Nina, Tom Perez on now about DNC Rigging:


(Look for the Live at the bottom left hand corner)

Philip Rucker from WaPo is on discussing his worthless review of the book, but it’s used as lead-up to the interview.

Update: Rucker was more even handed in his explanations on the radio.

Nina and Tom are on separately to give their views. Nina had to go first.


Perez claims there is a JFV with all state parties now, but he’s sidestepping the sins. He claims there is a 10M innovation fund and increases for state monies by 1/3.

An Alabama caller is “calling” Tom on the carpet about how the money did not flow back to the state parties. Also the lack of unity given the recent purge of Berniecrats from key positions on the DNC. Perez responds that there are more AA’s and union members on the DNC.

The interviews with both are pretty short.
