  1. Sanders is not a good candidate either because he's got liabilities. I think Biden could get around this just because it looks like a retread of what was done to Clinton (a vague scandal with no real substance and Trump getting help from a foreign power). It's better that this play out now rather than at this time next year. That aside, another nominee would probably be best for other reasons (Biden's memory issues are a problem).

  2. Pelosi handled this properly. So many wanted her to just rush right to the impeachment inquiry, but she didn't move too fast and acted only when it was sensible to proceed. Everything in the Mueller Report was unscrupulous, but it was so muddled that it would have been hard to build a strong enough case. This phone call with Ukraine is an actually opening to go directly after Trump and the whistle blower's testimony could take him down. The Republican Senate passed a non-binding resolution regarding the inquiry over the phone call, so you know that there is something real here. When McConnell suddenly agreed to pass election security that was a big clue.

  3. Sanders avoids socially liberal settings because he's one of those people who believes that the "Heartland" is put off by minorities and LGBT people. More than anyone he is trying to get votes from working class white voters who really don't vote based on their wallets, but on social issues over all. He's convinced that an economic message will get them to support him, but that's not at all accurate.

  4. There is an idea among the left that Trump being re-elected and destroying the country would push the country far left enough to elect the type of leaders that they want. The problem with that logic is that Trump being elected in the first place hasn't raised their political fortunes (almost none of the far left's preferred candidate's even made it out of primaries in last year's elections). A damaged economy and democracy being in shambles after two terms of Trump probably would give the Democratic Party an electoral realignment in 2024, but undoing all the harm Trump would have done would take decades.

  5. The only way he resigns is if Trump is voted out, Democrats take the Senate and hold the House, then a thorough investigation takes place. He might be made uncomfortable enough to resign in the instance, but getting a Supreme Court judge to resign is like pulling a steak out of doberman's mouth.

  6. Protester throws red liquid at legislators, shutting down California Senate

    SACRAMENTO — The state Legislature ground to a halt during today's final session when a protester threw red liquid from the upstairs gallery onto the Senate floor while yelling, "That's for the dead babies."

     

    A video of the incident posted by a Twitter user named @connectwithdeb shows a woman telling CHP officers "my menstrual blood is all over the Senate floor" before being detained. The account has videos of anti-vaccine protests that took place Friday at the Capitol.

     

    Even the soaps couldn't come up with this craziness. This is disgusting behavior.

  7. That's an infringement on rights, but it's not an infringement on the 2nd Amendment so it's ok. The fact that this has even been proposed shows how backwards gun nuts are. Reasonable gun control is supposedly unconstitutional, but monitoring people because of a medical condition isn't.

  8. Georgia will have two Senate races next year

    GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson (Ga.) announced Wednesday that he will step down from the Senate at the end of the year, citing health issues.
     
    "After much prayer and consultation with my family and my doctors, I have made the very tough decision to leave the U.S. Senate at the end of this year. I have informed Georgia Governor Brian Kemp today that I will resign my Senate seat effective December 31, 2019," Isakson said in a statement.
     
    There will have to be a special election for the seat in November 2020. This presents a huge opportunity for Democrats to expand the Senate map and increase their chances of gaining control.

  9. *Stephanie Forrester voice*  That man is married, Melania. You are such a slut! You made your filthy bed with that pig, now wallow in it!

     

    Jesting aside if soap operas weren't so looked down upon nowadays someone would have jumped at a Capitol reboot.

  10. Most people who watch news programming are older and older people of course tend to be more conservative. Conservatives also seem to need validation of their opinions from like minded people and that is what Fox News is there for.

  11. The tax cuts were a bust from the start for working people. Some folks got excited about getting bonuses at work but those were more like severance pay because they were let go shortly after. Businesses and the ultra wealthy definitely did put the tax cuts into the economy like Republicans pretend they did.

    The 25th Amendment is not an option because most of the cabinet is there in an "acting" capacity and therefore never went through confirmation. They don't have the power to do anything. 

    That wasn't even something I thought of. It's crazy that most of the cabinet is acting. The state of our government is just terrible.
