For starters, putting Marianne Williamson on stage is hurting the party's chances to unseat Trump. Here's how to scrap the rules and start over: "Girlfriend, you are so on." Thus spoke Marianne Williamson, spiritual adviser to the stars, responding to a question at a Democratic presidential debate in which she was, inexplicably, taking part, and she further said her first act as president of the United States would be, naturally, to call New Zealand's prime minister.
You would think that Williamson's performance would mean that she would be so off the stage for the second round of 2020 debates, and it's not too late to change the rules -- immediately. Beating Trump is the political cause of our lifetimes and we simply cannot afford a process that advantages the activist left over the mainstream, the wealthy over the middle class, and the television famous over viable leaders.
To rectify this, the DNC should scrap its rules for selecting debate participants and start over.
