Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Not exactly true.  The DLC and its Blue Dog DINOs hijacked the party in 1986, turning it into the GOP with a smiley-face button.  We progressives have been trying to get back to the table ever since but have been blocked by piles of money and by procedural rules that are increasingly hostile to any grass-roots activity.  Everything has come from on high as dictated to the DNC by its corporate owners.  Nothing is allowed to come up from the ranks.  It's the main reason the Democratic Party is laughably short of local candidates.
