NewAbnormal podcast: Tim Miller's idea for Schumer: Murkowski as majority leader

Tim Miller thinks that Schumer could make a deal with Murkowski, Mitt, and (shudder) Susan Collins (maybe others)
that Dems will back Murkowski as majority leader.
Sweetener: Dems will provide some kind of support to Murkowski in 2022, because she will be under
attack from trump for being on board early congratulating Biden.

This would make it a lot easier for Biden to get his choices confirmed, and maybe even allow for some decent legislation.
And of course MITCH would be deposed and kicked to the curb. Priceless.

Thoughts?


EDIT TO ADD:

Murkowski would likely be a lot more open to judges nominated by Biden and would not be enthusiastic to continue Mitch's court-packing with right-wing freaks.

4. Collins and Mitt are safe in their seats, and no doubt a deranged trumper will primary Murkowski

she will need all the help she can get in 2022, no matter where it comes from, if she cares about getting re-elected

9. And Pat Toomey is retiring in 2022, may be worth an approach.
