Wasserman Schultz and Obama were key DNC leaders who led to the #DemDisaster

The combined machinations of the DNC, Superdelegates and the Hillary Clinton campaign have set back Democratic and progressive progress by 20 or more years. This article explores the damage done and who to blame.

Let's start with a screaming reality. All the polls showed that Bernie would have done far better than Hillary in the general election. Bernie Sanders would have won. He would have won big and his coat-tails would have carried Russ Feingold and probably many other senate and house candidates.

There are a number of targets for blame. But before we talk about who to blame, l let's talk about what the targets of blame should be blamed for:

1-rigging the Democratic primary or allowing it to happen-- that would be rigging by the DNC, rigging by collusion of the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and the MSM, rigging by local Democratic committee people and other leaders who obstructed fair and open primaries and problems with primary voting. Repeat studies have shown that even the vote counting was rigged for some of the primaries.

2-Loss of the Senate: A Top Down disaster-- the DNC leadership, with Obama rigged many state primary elections for senate and house Democratic candidates-- designating losers based on the criteria that they would be obsequious to the DNC.

3-Loss of the House. Same Top Down rigging problem. I believe that Bernie Sanders could have won the election big, with huge coat-tails that could have carried many house races. Millennials and independents who stayed home would have come out to vote, to engage in GOTV.

4-Loss of the Scalia replacement seat on the Supreme Court and who knows how many more.

5-Loss of voters who shifted from Democrat or left leaning independent to become Trump Supporters.
