Obama to Democrats: “Avoid a circular firing squad”

Both the former president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are warning members of their party that purity tests don’t win elections

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warns Democrats to avoid a lurch to the left, a wake-up call for Democrats in Wisconsin, which could be the closest battleground of 2020

CRIMSON TAZVINZWA, AIWA! NO!| Former President Barack Obama warned Democratic lawmakers ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

According to Business Insider, he told them to avoid a “circular firing squad.”

There’s an old saying that politics in America is played between the 40 yard lines. What this means, for those unfamiliar with football, is that we’re a centrist country, never straying very far to the left or the right in elections or national policies. This has been true for decades. It probably won’t be after today’s election.

Obama said he feared Democrats would fall into “rigidity” and prevent progress.

Additionally, the former president said America faces external threats of nationalism. He said these ideas “divide us into us and them.”
