The Democratic National Committee will work to heal its fractured infrastructure in a bid to "save their country from authoritarian rule by an unbalanced president," says Jill Abramson, former executive editor of The New York Times.

Writing in The Guardian, Abramson says Tom Perez, the DNC's new chairman, and Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who had also run for the slot, will try to "work together as a team."

"They see clearly that they share progressive values and need strategic wins. Most important, Democrats need strength to save their country from authoritarian rule by an unbalanced president. It would be wise if the party's base followed their example," Abramson says.

One key is to heal the rift between Sen. Bernie Sanders, Democrats and establishment Democrats, an "unneeded distraction and badly timed energy-suck," according to Abramson.

"The Sanders wing is right that the best place to start rebuilding is not in Washington but at the local and state levels. There have been Sanders takeovers in the states of Washington, Hawaii and Nebraska, and grassroots winds are blowing stronger — all healthy developments for Democrats.

"But the health of the national party can't be ignored, something that Perez and Ellison both recognize."
