Glenn Greenwald points out a key Democratic symptom

This has long been the principal flaw of Democrats and it has not changed. They are both fearful and incapable of defending any position unless, from the outset, they are assured, by their conniving and principle-free consultants, that most Americans already agree with it. The idea of forcefully articulating a view in order to change public opinion—such as explaining why de-funding is a perfectly valid option like all the others for ending the war—never occurs to them.

Not a good situation.
