Careful who you nominate

Those who are pushing hard for a centrist candidate for the democratic party should consider that if that candidate loses the presidential election, the re-election of Trump is on them and not those who find it impossible to enthusiastically support a candidate “who can win” but has no political appeal beyond that.  “Any democrat” may not be the electable opponent to Trump.  Pushing that line is dangerous.  A just enough to win candidate may bring about results similar to last election and not because a bunch of hard headed liberals refused to support other than Trump but because a bunch of not so liberally minded democrats pushed another not so liberal candidate upon them.
