Of course the Democrats need to keep their eyes on the ultimate prize: the defeat of the current president. But it also seems likely that the all-too-real possibility of a Trump reelection will concentrate Democrats’ minds on the importance of unity in the general election. That argues for, rather than against, a spirited nomination contest in which differences among the candidates — on economics, foreign policy and heathcare reform — and among Democratic party voters are fully ventilated. Then, when a nominee has been selected, the focus can shift to unseating Trump.
