You'd think the Democratic Party might have learned a thing or two about political campaigns by now, but that would be an overstatement. Not even this mother-of-all showdowns with Donald Trump and his shameless Republican toadies seems to be inspiring bold new moves or a sense of urgency  by the Democrats, who should know by now that their chips are  running low.

The gloves are off and the 2020 presidential battle has begun--even if the field of candidates, particularly on the Republican side, is far from complete. Seems right now it's Trump, The Republican Candidate, versus the The Others.

Is this what looms before us?

Hear that sound? It's frustration from people whose patience is wearing thin with a party that isn't saying where it wants to go, how it intends to get there, what's our stake in the game.

Criticisms of the established order abound--and with good reason. But where is our plan? What is our agenda? Almost on the cusp of 2020 elections, what's in play?

We give ourselves no quarter today. No dodging, no excuses: Are we doing what we're supposed to be doing? What's our plan?

We are encouraged to believe that as a nation we're experiencing just another political phase that is, perhaps, a bit more dramatic than those we've been through. But soon enough this rough patch will be behind us and life will go on.

Somehow, this feels different. The situation's not normal.

The Trump propaganda machine is on full blast about "ex-Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig's indictment a week ago on charges of lying to federal investigators, including those on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, about work Craig might have done foreign clients, including former Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, but not reporting it to U.S. authorities, as he was required to do.

Trump and his passel of media mouthpieces immediately seized on the news, deliberately identifying Craig and his alleged crimes with the Obama White House. Not true. Craig was long gone from the White House and, like Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort, had set himself up as a well-connected consultant available to foreign governments looking to increase their leverage with Washington.

Craig's legal entanglements and personal connections are sure to come to light. Leid Stories discusses some of them.
