We underestimate the Democrats and their leaders. Over the past three years they have done quite well negotiating a difficult terrain. They engineered a major election victory in 2018. The decision to impeach Trump was impeccably timed. The hearings, presided over by Adam Schiff, were well conceived and executed. And their ranks have remained united through it all. All of which makes me think that progressive and left activists could learn a lesson or two from them. I know from my earlier experience that to think that you have a monopoly, or near monopoly, of knowledge never ends well.
