In the midst of their seemingly endless and unpredictable fight for the 2020 presidential nomination, does it make sense for Democrats to promote some of their least likable Congressional leaders as the new face of their party?

The result of the new impeachment investigation, assigned to six different House committees, is that the leaders of those committees—including Maxine Waters, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings—will dominate the debate and upstage the flailing presidential contenders.

As it happens, all six chairs are aging, strident big city leftists from New York, California, Maryland and Massachusetts, perfectly positioned to alienate key suburban voters in swing states that will decide the outcome of the election.

The impeachment pursuit elevates some of the Democrats’ least appealing proponents to positions of pre-eminence, helping to insure party losses in the upcoming battles for control of the House, the Senate and the White House.
