Washington -- You might recall that, nine years ago, I wrote a book entitled “The Death of Liberalism.” It was an answer to Sam Tanenhaus’ suicidal 2009 book “The Death of Conservatism.” Sam’s book came out mere months before the conservative wave election of 2010. The liberals still have not gotten over the 2010 election. It pretty much eliminated an entire tier of promising liberal candidates. It also explains why the Democrats’ promising young candidates this time around were the likes of Beto O’Rourke. Remember him? Or Eric Swalwell? And, of course, there was Sen. Kamala Harris, who dropped out of the race before the primaries even began. Could any of these Young Turks have beaten President Donald Trump in 2020? I doubt it. That is why the Democrats nominated 78-yearold Joe Biden, the guy who spent most of the campaign in his basement.
