On Manchin from Ezra Levin -- what is our role now

Manchin is right that democracy reforms have broad bipartisan support. Just not in the senate. Ultimately thereís not much new in his op-ed - itís all talk until the vote is called. Like all politicians, heíll stick his finger in the wind, and itís up to us to change the weather.

IT IS UP TO US TO CHANGE THE WEATHER. This is the crux of it I think.

Make Manchin bend.

Not sure if we're at the carrot or stick point on that. Not sure what the carrots or sticks are.

But I feel relatively certain Biden knows.

I'll be looking closely for his lead as to where we need to go with activism.

1. The problem is that "the weather" that needs changing is in WV

And Democrats have little influence over the weather there.
