Tuesday's election results made clear what surveys have been showing: Voters are hungry for genuinely progressive policies in response to the dire problems we face. The grassroots enthusiasm that energized young voters and people of color was not driven by a desire to "reach across the aisle" or appeal to "compassionate conservatives," yet the mainstream media and Democratic leadership seem oblivious to that fact.

This would bring us closer towards a society that isn’t defined by hate and violence, but by a dedication to peace.
