Hanauer: Re-claiming the true center
Great analysis by one of the 1%. Establishment Dems are set on 're-claiming the center' but which center? He shows that they're talking about the ideological center when they should be talking about the majoritarian center. The latter is where the majority of we the people reside, which on the ideological scale is in fact what the establishment in both Parties calls the 'far left.' The policies the progressive candidates propose, like a living wage and healthcare for all, are what the majority of Americans want. That is the center from which we should operate, not some imagined ideological split between two Parties both bought and paid for by the oligarchs.
