ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS: Should a White Man Be the Face of the Democratic Party in 2020?

Is a white man the best face for an increasingly diverse Democratic Party in 2020? And what’s the bigger gamble: to nominate a white man and risk disappointing some of the party’s base, or nominate a minority candidate or a woman who might struggle to carry predominantly white swing states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania that both Barack Obama and President Trump won?

Obama’s race didn’t stop him from winning those states, and Trump didn’t win them because he’s white. Just enough Obama voters in those states took a chance on Trump, because they felt they’d abandoned by the Democrats — and they have been.

Stories like this one show the Democrats haven’t learned that lesson. In fact, they don’t seem to realize that there’s even a lesson in need of learning.

But let’s keep that part amongst ourselves.
