It looks like that Macron is sort of trying to resurrect the Third Way in France, although he had a cup of coffee in the Hollande administration I think that as far as the Socialist Party, and Labour in the UK the Third Way forces pretty much have egg on their face/have been beaten down. On this side of the pond it’s never been clear to me what the Lib Dems actually stand for, but maybe they’ll try and dig it up from the grave in the UK…

Bernie I pretty much thought was the de facto leader of the Democrats after the election. I don’t really think Ellison has risen because he’s a black Muslim… I think that he’s an issues-oriented guy not just gotten to where he is because he fits the quota for identities (and even goes beyond!) that is so chic in the Obama/Clinton corporatist/identity politics-based Democratic Party — it takes me a long time to believe in anybody I pretty much think they are all waiting to insert the knife, lol, into back, but anyway Ellison was “Bernie’s man” for DNC although he didn’t get that (chair) they did establish a new position for him. And so I think that actually showed something… Even if at the same time it did show that perhaps it’s too much to say Bernie is the de facto leader we really never should have expected the old guard to just shrivel up (like that Wizard of Oz witch, lol) they still are going to have something to say about social democracy (which I think Bernie actually represents whatever he says that he represents, the Bolivarian Revolution for instance is a better example of democratic socialism IMO) overtaking “Wall Street’s second party”! (Like we are still seeing Shill out there still representing herself as if she is some kind of leader.) But anyway, I view these developments as overall positive even if the Obamabot/Clintonista forces may have won (in the past), and may still yet have a few more battles to prevail in.
