Hillary Clinton did not lose the presidential race because she is stupid. The New Democrats have dominated the Democratic Party’s presidential candidates for decades. This means that they are extremely good at internal Democratic Party politics. The New Democrats faced a major challenge after Hillary’s loss to the worst presidential candidate in our Nation’s history. The loss discredited the New Democrats’ leaders, policies, institutions, and funders. It proved the accuracy of Tom Frank’s efforts to warn the Party about the price it would pay for abandoning the Party’s traditional working class base.
