Re: “Is the local Democratic Party imploding?

The Democratic Party is uniting not imploding. This Unity is for 'small d' democracy not loyalty to personality or party; all the more reasons for opponents to worry about. The school board and city council victories should prove as much to those looking for evidence. The graceful transition of the school board chair and vice-chair positions, 8-0, between individuals who knew each other as opponents in terms of opinions and policy decisions demonstrate what is normal when public accountability and civic decorum prevail. It is curious, how on the other hand, allegations of sweet deal have surfaced so quickly involving those who digressed from such norms on the county commission. Referring to the CLT Observer article on 8th December or the rumor spread by the reader # 1 here should be investigated further. As a big tent, Democratic party may have its share of 'democrats in name only' but it is for its activists and rank & file to marginalize them through an iterative democratic process which will only strengthen the party. So to sum up, Democrats do have a sharp memory but they focus it on building future better than the past!
