In this moment the task of progressive minded people isn’t to litigate and re-litigate the past positions of Joe Biden or the Democratic Party. What’s foremost — especially with Trump recklessly and dangerously mismanaging a pandemic and imploding economy — is that we think outside the box, that we grasp the strategic and tactical policies and issues that will activate and unite a sprawling and diverse coalition for the election battle this fall.

In other words, big tent thinking, a search for common ground. utmost flexibility, and practical action are in order.
