When the Watergate hearings started, people weren’t backing impeachment. By the time they ended, people were. The investigative hearings made the difference. (I’d expect Pelosi to know that.)

I would say you will certainly find some pundits at Daily Kos who say they fear that if the Democrats nominate a true progressive in 2020 they will lose. You will also find just as many who favor a true progressive. Among the rank and file, Warren has handily won the biweekly Daily Kos straw poll many times now. You also write, “…had the Democrats used their time in power to pass bold progressive policies they’d be right now reaping the political benefits and the country might’ve been spared the catastrophe we now find ourselves in.” The only time the… Read more »

Hell, I can remember some “progressives” who talked about sitting out the 2010 midterms to “punish Obama” for not delivering 100% of his campaign promises, especially on health care. The talk at the time was “give the people a decade of right-wing control and they’ll swarm to the progressive cause in 2020” (these dolts obviously didn’t consider how those right-wingers might not be so willing to give up control).

You know, it’s just too bad that the Democratic “base” was just SOOOOOOOO in love with the idea of “a black man as President” in 2008 that it NEVER bothered to actually investigate said black man’s actual voting record during his time as US Senator because, if they had, they might have been a lot LESS enamored and more willing to back the woman whose ONLY real flaw was her Iraq War vote (because *her* Senate voting record was almost exactly identical to the black man’s, except when you factored in ALL the votes they both voted on, hers was… Read more »

I don’t know about avowed Republican, but she is of an age when she may have been a Republican when Republicans were nothing but the other party. She became a Democrat when Republicans seriously lost their way after Reagan.

If Nancy Pelosi does not say “Let’s impeach” this week she will go down as a Dem establishment coward. https://www.alternet.org/2019/09/house-committee-intensifies-the-push-for-impeaching-trump-but-nancy-pelosi-is-still-putting-the-brakes/

They need to impeach if not simply to bring Trump’s taxes into some form of enhanced scrutiny. Impeachment would give them a lot to work with regarding subpoenas.
