An analysis of the nation’s political situation was given by John Brummett during Saturday’s Clinton Day Dinner.
Brummett was the guest speaker of the event, which was hosted by the Democratic Party of Clark County.
Brummett stated that the current state of American politics has to be contemplated.
“Partisanship has never been stronger in this country than it is right now. People are incredibly partisan these days because they are polarized Conservative or they are polarized Liberal and they are that before they are Republican or Democrat,” said Brummett.
According to Brummett, the political parties have become less relevant. To prove his point, Brummett asked who were the two most exciting, interesting and crowd drawing candidates in last year’s Presidential race.
Brummett noted the two candidates who stood out and filled the arenas were Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.
“The Republicans managed to get theirs nominated and elected. The Democrats resisted theirs and he did not get elected,” said Brummett.
According to Brummett, political parties must embrace anyone in their party who can fill up an arena, if they expect to be successful.
In addition, Brummett believes it is important for parties to find candidates for positions and not allow winners to be declared by default.
Brummett noted it is important for candidates to have a strong message when they campaign, as well as a plan for action.
Brummett believes that a successful candidate must address economic reform and political reform to their messages.
“If you can capture a message that says we get your economic position, we feel your pain and we have policies for it, I think you’ve got it. If you can put those things together,” Brummett said.
In addition, Brummett said it is important for candidates to be righteous by practicing the right thing.
