Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

And another view
Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary under Clinton, states the task of Democrats perhaps most clearly of all.
My recommendation to Democrats is not to become more religious. Religion is a personal matter. Nor should Dems move toward Republican positions on matters of personal morality, such as gay marriage or abortion. (One caveat: I do think Democrats should be clear that they want fewer abortions in America—not by prohibiting them, but by making sure young people have access to contraceptives and family-planning counseling, and other social services.) My recommendation is that Democrats offer somewhat fewer plans and policies and have more moral conviction.
