Are Democrats Beginning to Notice That Their Base Actually Exists?

Democrats donkey

Far back as I can remember, the attitude of establishment Democrats has been to ignore their base, after all, hardcore Democrats aren’t going to vote for Republicans so screw them, they’ll vote Democratic no matter what the party does.

Oops, then along came November 4, 2014.  Where the base can go is to the mall instead of to the voting booth and that’s apparently exactly what happened last week.

Maybe, just maybe, the honchos in D.C. are beginning to get that:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) gained a leadership position in the Senate Democratic caucus Thursday, giving the prominent progressive senator a key role in shaping the party’s policy priorities.

Warren’s new role, which was created specifically for her, will be strategic policy adviser to the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, helping to craft the party’s policy positions and priorities. She will also serve as a liaison to progressive groups to ensure they have a voice in leadership meetings and discussions, according to a source familiar with the role.

We.  Shall.  See.
