TBH this is really a microcosm of how the justice system often plays out. Ask any public defender, they all have stories of how they lost cases even with the facts, evidence, and common sense on their side.
I hate to say it, but don't get your hopes up. Obama-era austerity and neoliberalism helped lead to Trump. A return to that headed by someone even more neoliberal than Obama is likely to lead to something even worse.
This data is based on the Democratic Party platform, which is not the same thing as the policies Democrats pursue in practice - in practice, they remain stranded in the 90s, fretting about the deficit and desperately trying to triangulate on every issue.
Zero. The Republican Party is the party of Trump now. Genie's not going back into the bottle. A more likely scenario, one that I would prefer to happen, is that moderate Republicans defect to the Democrats, creating a center-right party, and progressives breaking off to form a center-left party...
The animosity between Tanden and progressives is hardly an online-only affair. She's about as poisonous as Emanuel in that respect, although to her credit she has not, to my knowledge, covered up a murder.

Biden is appointing Neera Tanden to lead the OMB, which just feels like a deliberate insult to the Bernie wing of the party. Neera is one of the worst partisan hacks in Washington, a defecit hawk, and proposed seizing national resources like oil as "payment" for the US toppling Gadaffi.
