About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

What do you think? Electoral College (EV) with DC and Puerto Rico as US States

a lot of talk right now about Trump and the new SCOTUS rigging the 2020 in Trump's favor. But what happens in all those states that elect a Democratic majority in the Senate? Sure they can rig the election on EV but they can't rig the Senate vote. End the filibuster? Start a new impeachment against Trump? Adopt DC and Puerto Rico? I don't think any of these thoughts are unreasonable considering what we have been through for the last four years. Opinions?

If Pence is unable to serve----Joe Biden could be in the White House before the election

Nancy could step down temporally---the House appoints Biden Speaker---he assumes the Presidency-appoints Harris as his VP--Nancy gets reelected to Speaker ---EZPZ-------and this is what might happen --and AOC could be appointed to SCOTUS now---(never mind that she is not qualified ----she is a lot better than Kavanaugh---and you don't have to have a law degree to be on SCOTUS---if there are that many GOP Senators sick and unable to serve she could win --fewer headaches

The Constitution does not require the speaker to be an incumbent member of the House of Representatives, although every speaker thus far has been.[4] The speaker is second in the United States presidential line of succession, after the vice president and ahead of the president pro tempore of the Senate.[2]
