Bellwether Primary in the Democratic Congressional races

I hope "Establishment" Democrats, who are unwilling to embrace the spirit of progressive change that is sweeping the party and shaking it to its foundations, will take a lesson from the defeat of "machine" politician Joe Crowley, in Queens, NY today, by a young, female, nonwhite Sanders-supporting progressive candidate, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Crowley was supposedly in line to be the next Speaker, when the Democrats take the House, and assuming Pelosi steps down at some point. But now, I hope, there will be some recognition that there needs to be some serious re-thinking of what the Democratic Party stands for, and who should lead it.
