Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, the obvious purely electoral strategy in a two party system to get anything at all out of it is to draw redlines and keep to them. Of course the US left has neither the organization nor the will to organize something like that. And it is a strategy that ultimately assumes some measure of good faith and will to power. Which we really can not. Just as the Sensible Moderates™ on Brexit Island were perfectly happy to burn it all down and salt the remains. So I don't think it can work, but I can't blame anyone for trying.
After all, the likely result of a a Biden administration would look like: Mishandling of the pandemic, austerity and rehabilitation of the GOP brand and a consequent continuation of the far right take over of all state institutions.
