Democrats need an untraditional candidate

Leftists will not initially like me; but Democrats need someone untraditional. Mark my words.  Progressivism will not survive six more years unless it dramatically changes.  Progressives will not have Donald Trump on any ballot in 2024.  The leftists may see a brief electoral surge based on “odious Trump.” But once he’s out of the picture, leftism will be an electoral disaster. It already has some disastrous traits.  Leftism brought on Trump.  Outside of a few progressive enclaves, the American public does NOT embrace a leftist agenda.
