The Democratic Strategist is pleased to offer a significant new Strategy Memo by James Vega that presents a provocative and important argument.
Here’s how it begins:
The progressive wing of the Democratic Party is facing a fundamental choice about political strategy.
There is no question that, as a recent Politico article stated,
“An ascendant progressive and populist movement” is increasingly
dominant in the Democratic coalition today.
The single most dramatic evidence of this rapid rise of the progressive-populist wing is, of course, the emergence of Elizabeth Warren in a few short years as the most widely popular and generally respected progressive leader in the Democratic universe since Teddy Kennedy in his prime.
But progressive-populist Democrats have not yet grasped the critical fact that Elizabeth Warren is not only a compelling progressive champion. She is also presenting progressive and populist Democrats with a very new and distinct approach to progressive political strategy. It is a new approach that inevitably requires progressive Dems to make a profound and fundamental choice regarding how they will relate to the rest of the Democratic Party.

We believe you will find this memo both useful and important.
