Those that fear a takeover by the out-of-touch left should realize that itâ€™s not liberal candidates who are doing well. Instead, Democrats will be welcoming in junior members who are not ideological automatons and will add much needed gravity to the partyâ€™s right flank.
This is why I can feel comfortable rooting for a Democratic victoryâ€”because, if it goes well, it could also be a centrist victory. The Democrats would be a much stronger and far more effective party if they could just turn towards the political middle. This election could put them on that path.
