It’s called a policy concession:
And not just $15/hr minimum wage legislation–make it an executive order for all federal employees and contractors. Because an executive order won’t die in late-hour negotiations: it’s all on her.
This might come as a shock to the ClintonCondescenders (the analogue of BernieBros), but many Sanders supporters actually want certain policy items. The support doesn’t just stem from delayed-onset teenage rebellion Against The System, though the Clinton campaign and surrogates pushing the BernieBro thing have done a masterful job of obfusicating this.
Dan Kervick put together a partial list:
Find a couple (I’m partial to minimum wage increases but YMMV), adopt them–and not in a watered-down form. She’ll get enthusiasm. Because the ‘economic left‘ is tired of getting scraps from the Democratic Party high table. We need a seat at it. To build a coalition, you need more than “vote for us or things will suck even worse”, you have to make concessions, and not just to your clients.
Or maybe Clinton just isn’t that pragmatic after all…
