'Cause down deep...you know the Democratic Party we have now is not going to bring about the important and difficult changes our government needs to make.



There is a movement currently underway for breaking off a large chunk of the Democratic base, independents and new voter turnout as well as the traditional progressive third parties and create a new working class progressive party that would take up the causes that the Democratic Party won't.
One major differences from earlier attempts at this sort of thing is the national mood towards the two dominant political parties and labor unions finally admitting they no longer have a home in the existing Democratic Party.
Time will tell how successful it will be but theirs no denying that, after 2016, anythings possible.
The flaw of triangulation could be that there could emerge another place to go.
