Same ole same ole with new locations and younger players from a few generations back laying the groundwork to continue those pathways for the generations that will come after them. The jokes or jabs being whispered behind the backs of the powers that now be, are all talking about the "family" that has resurfaced that are calling more of the shots than most people realize. I'm sure this is all just baseless rumors, right?
The commercial you mention, where the guy says, "I'm not a typical democrat". I laughed to myself and thought wow, this commercial should be being paid for by the republican committee. This handpicked candidate just confirmed the thoughts of every voting republican if even he thinks the typical democrat is nothing to be proud of or doesn't want to be mistaken for one. You just can't make this stuff up!
