Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's a very different Party than it was in 2008.  First most of the Blue Dogs and DLC types have been wiped-out.  Second, Progressive Caucus has grown to 96 Representatives and members should be chairing 10 of the House Standing Committees.   Plus Pelosi resigned from membership of the Progressive Caucus when she was elected House Minority leader in 2004.  

And there's no political downside to moving Left.  In fact, if I'm reading the tea leaves correctly, there's plenty of upside.

We'll see
