“I think we became the party of hemming and hawing and trying to be all things to everybody,” she said in a recent interview. “And it’s not to say that we need to exclude people, but it’s to say that we don’t have to be afraid of having a clear message.”

She went on to describe what she believes that message should be:

“We believe in the human dignity of all people. We believe that health care should be a right. We believe that all people should be paid a living wage.”
