  • Short answer? Nope. Newsom’s California. He’s Pelosi and Feinstein. He’s the Old Guard with a facelift and Botox. As long as San Francisco is a tent city that only gets cleaned up when China’s dictator and Biden BFF is in town, California is a scarlet letter.

    Biden has no intentions of leaving office. Like Feinstein and Ginsburg, he’s going to stay until he’s wheeled out feet first. And, just like with F and G, the damage will be incalculable.

    Further, just like moving a couch, it has to be planned to prevent getting stuck. Harris has to leave first. She’s as bad as Biden. Then a replacement veep (Al Franken, maybe, if the party can beg him to return) for about two weeks until Biden can be removed. Then Franken picks someone. I don’t know who. The dems really don’t have any heavy hitters. It’s quite possible the dems are finally arriving at the termination point of their political party.

    I mean, unless Jimmy Carter’s available. Right now, he’s just about the most popular democratic candidate possible.
