The title is too optimistic. Democrats are as hard to eradicate as cockroaches. However, Michael Krieger does a good job of running down some of their myriad weaknesses and failures. From Krieger at libertyblitzkrieg.com:
You don’t need to be a genius to see that the Democratic Party doesn’t really stand for anything when it comes to the issues that matter most to U.S. voters. This is a topic I’ve written about incessantly since last year’s embarrassing loss by status quo, corporate media, donor-favorite Hillary Clinton, and it was highlighted once again in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll with the response to the following question.
Despite the dire implications of the above, the brain-surgeons leading the party remain committed to running on “Trump works for Putin, let’s start a war with Russia” while ignoring the multitude of very important issues people really care about — you know, like oligarchy and increasing economic insecurity.

NEW YORK — House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley hesitated when asked about his party’s core message to voters.

That’s not exactly true. Democrats have consistently been yelling about Russia, and it’s not doing them any favors.
