Electable Hillary's supporters talk up the idea of changing DNC chairs

Democratic Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz, BFF of the payday-loan bitness, is taking some heat for her May 17 anathema against Bernie Sanders and all his supporters (Alexander Bolton, Dems discuss dropping Wasserman Schultz The Hill 05/24/2016):

Following the uproar at the Nevada convention earlier this month, some pro-Clinton lawmakers wanted Sanders to call for party unity, but he opted instead to rip the party establishment.

“Unfortunately, the senator’s response was anything but acceptable,” Wasserman Schultz told CNN. “It certainly did not condemn his supporters for acting violently or engaging in intimidation tactics, and instead added more fuel to the fire.”

That response struck many Democrats — Clinton and Sanders supporters alike — as tone-deaf.

“It’s very important for her to adopt a role of pouring oil on troubled waters. She did the opposite last week when she poured gasoline on the events that occurred in Nevada,” said Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), the only member of the Senate who has endorsed Sanders.
