Only a strategic alliance of all democratic minded organizations and people – not least the Democratic Party – offers the chance of defeating the powerful opponents of democracy and democratic rights, gathered in and closely aligned to Trump and the Republican Party. Any idea that the alliance is temporary and tactical, to be dispensed with at the first sign of a weakening of this retrograde and authoritarian political bloc is wrongheaded. The accent within this expansive and diverse coalition defending democracy for the foreseeable future should be on finding common ground and cooperation, not contestation and division.
