Do you feel lucky, Spain?

Well, do you?
Pedro Sánchez Castejón, a virtually unknown figure to the public, has become the new leader of the Socialist Party (PSOE) and the man who will run in general elections next year to try to wrest power from the Popular Party (PP) conservatives.
A 42-year-old deputy in congress with a PhD in economics, Sánchez was elected new secretary general on Sunday in primaries where all card-carrying members of the Socialist party were allowed to vote directly for the first time in party history. 
Whose grand plan is;
Sánchez’s first pledge following his victory was to create a leadership “as far to the left as its grassroots voters,” while shying away “from populism and demagoguery,” in what seemed like a veiled reference to Podemos.
Vote for us, there are crazier leftists out there!
The Socialist party has been stuck in a rut for the last two-and-a-half years, losing election after election at the local, regional and national level.  
Naturally that calls for more left-wing solutions to Spain's problems. Because the opposition parties might all run off the road together;
Someone who knows the PSOE well said that Sánchez “is the bicycle that [former Socialist minister] José Blanco included in the race under a year ago, faithful to his habit of always including a bicycle even in a Formula 1 race, because if all the cars crash his bicycle will still be there.”
