For numerous People of the Bern, placing Ellison (a key and early Sanders supporter) at the head of the party would have been a sign of their retroactive vindication after the bitter 2016 presidential nomination defeat, and an appropriate gesture of humility for Obama and Clinton loyalists who led the party to a calamitous general-election loss. The hostility between Democrats and Republicans during the Obama years was surely epic, but it was played out in the context of familiar partisan gamesmanship within the Congress, courts, and administrative agencies - and in significant measure over particular substantive issues. He will have to unite a party still reeling after Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump. They will struggle against any efforts toward increasing free trade, for example, even though the benefits brought to all Americans from trade have always been a fundamental part of the GOP's raison d'être. In Alaska, for instance, the House of Representatives flipped Democratic.
And now the politics of decision-making has materially moved from the traditional political arena to an attempt to rule from the street with demonstrations replacing debate.
Unfortunately, this phenomenon seems rooted in what appears to be a hard left-"progressive" takeover of the Democratic Party, with a specific goal of erasing national, religious, economic, and gender distinctions. Even inside the structure itself, The Wall Street Journal reported last week, progressives from the Sanders camp are taking over local Democratic committees and state parties from Hawaii to Nebraska. Democrats have to battle Trump, congressional Republicans, and their own base-with limited resources.

Hugh Jackman Might Still Be Wolverine If He Was an Avenger
Now, after playing the role in eight X-Men movies, Jackman has chose to hang up the claws forever. Of course, he's not the only one who would love to see that happen.
Instead, he said he'll focus on activism among certain candidates who share a progressive message.
"W$3 hat we've seen in the days after the inauguration is nothing short of incredible". I say that because it is hard for people in our party to accept that principle. "The challenge for us is to harness it in a productive way and a constructive way, and I think we will". We need an inspiring vision of equality that resonates in the hearts, minds, and souls of all Americans. We wish him the best of luck. Trump added, perhaps aiming to widen the fissure between the more radical progressives and the slightly less radical progressives - the only two groups with any current influence in the Democratic Party - that Ellison was the victim of the same shenanigans that killed Bernie Sanders" presidential hopes: "The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally "rigged.'
