Democrats No Longer Party of Change

Michael Barone nails one of the reasons Democrats lost. The party has ceded important ground to the Republicans. Not only have Democrats given the center to Republicans, but it is no longer seen as the party of change. This past election, Democrats were much more interested in fighting past battles and defending old concepts as opposed to looking to the future. I haven't seen an article yet that shows Democrats get this. I'm sure there is one out these somewhere, but I haven't seen it.

Once upon a time, liberals were the folks who wanted to change society. They thought existing institutions were unjust and that individuals needed protection against the workings of the market. They looked forward to a society that would be different.
