If I lived in Gaza and knew where hostages were being kept

how would I get that information to the Israel Defense Forces?

Assuming that release of the hostages was something I thought would begin to restore normal life?

And assuming I was courageous enough to risk being killed by their captors?

Replacing Biden would be a "certifiably crazy" move.

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee said the idea of replacing President Joe Biden as the party's candidate and winning the election in November is "certifiably crazy actually."

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison made the comment in a late-night reply Monday on X to a Biden-supporting poster who said it's "insane and frankly stupid" to think the party would "usurp the nomination" from Biden and choose a replacement behind closed doors, especially one who's not current-Vice President Kamala Harris.

Bottom line: Joe cannot be replaced. Assuming his current level of good health, he can only (1) run, or (2) voluntarily step aside and endorse a replacement.

Trump may have changed the rules of the game. But the advantage of incumbency is absolute and immutable, and is solely up to the incumbent to relinquish.

The gospel according to chairman Harrison.
