In a surprising move, the Democrats regain the control of the House of Representative with an impressive number.
Although winning the House is not as important as the Senate, but nevertheless it gives power to the Democrats to stop many of the Republican’s Bill. More importantly, it gave the Democrats the power of subpoena so to investigate the conducts of the President Donald Trump during the Campaign as well as after the election. This power alone is enough to rattle President Trump. In fact since the mid-term election, Mr. Trump has been very uneasy and unsecured.
But what is disturbing is the Democrats decision to still have Chuck Schumer as the minority leader in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House. These two individuals have been ineffective and basically useless for the positions they have held since the time that they were elected to their positions.
It seems the party leaders did not understand that the message the democratic voters were giving which was they need younger generations to take the leadership of the party, that is why many young people voted and that is why some young candidates who did not have any previous political experience were elected to the House.
The biggest enemy of the Democratic Party is Democratic Party. The leaders play dirty game in order remain the power. They do not have the courage and the guts to win elections from the Republicans. The 2016 election is a good, but very costly example.
The democratic leaders were so gong how to have Hillary Clinton as the candidate of their choice for the White House that they resorted to some of the dirtiest tactics causing Senator Bernie Sanders lose the primary election.
The other big mistake that the Democratic Leaders made was their failure to have Senator Bernie Sanders as the running mate for Hillary Clinton. Had Hillary Clinton picked Bernie Sanders as her running mate, it would have been impossible for Donald Trump to even get close in winning the number of votes that he received.
Many young democrats did not participate in the 2016 general election once Bernie Sanders was out of the race. The recent move by the Democratic leadership is the sign of repeating the same old mistake and ignoring the will of the people.
To stand firm against the Republican leaders and defeat their policies, Democratic Party needs young and energetic leaders who can effectively confront the Republicans and the Trump. They need to remember that 2020 is around the corner and they would need the young voters very badly, so to get these young and very important group of voters, the Democratic Leaders must change their policies and tactics and let the young and recently elected candidates to lead or at the very least have important roles in the new Congress.
Democrats must be fully alert and respond to any fake and false news or accusations made by this Administration and the media which made millions of dollars by expansive coverage of Donald Trump during the campaign.
