    That doesn't bother me. But yes, Omar, AOC, and others are a bit undisciplined.

    What does bode ill for the Dems are other things in the Politico article:
    Omar said that "Washington—and especially her Democratic colleagues—should get used to her troublemaking."
    ...the overzealous crop of young lawmakers are acting like bulls in a china shop.

    I think the Democrats could easily ignore them, but the press won't, and that is what is going to keep the party on their toes trying to spank them whenever they act up.

    If Pelosi can keep them quiet they will fade out. But Trump will never keep quiet. The press will always have a heyday with Trump. We will see who puts the most feet in their mouths in the next two years.

    Big if there has. The energised left love the fringe. The mushy middle does not.

    I am the mushy middle. It's a chore being there because I have two parties I have to groan at.

    Anyone who thinks that Obama wasn't all that much different from Trump is indeed a naïve wet behind the ears newbie to politics.

    Trump has systematically attempted to undo everything that Obama did. He hasn't always been successful, but he has attempted it. EG. repeal and replace.

    Well that's in part what he ran on and he has tried. But people still have this sense if mystique with BO. Unjustified as you say but still it persists.
