105. Both Pelosi and Schumer hold the line against the GOP on vote after vote, so GOP gets nothing...

...from us. That is an important part of leadership in the current circumstances. In other words, when the Trumpists want to achieve something nasty, they have to do it without a single Dem vote to assist them.

What Pelosi and Schumer do not do is throw away votes on creating symbolic bills that have zero chance of success -- such as, for instance, impeachment. As long as Republicans vote as a bloc to sustain Trump, as long as Republicans fail to see the light, it is worse than a stalemate. A million tweets will be generated: "I am so great I survived impeachment!"

Our best hope is to peel Republicans away from the GOP bloc -- not "coax" Democrats. Dems are already with Pelosi and Schumer.

But how are they going to peel away GOPers? How do you think? By letting Mueller continue to do his job.

Watch Mueller's progress, and watch individual Repub politicians' reactions, and use that as a wedge.

Stop trying to get rid of Nancy Pelosi. She's the best weapon we have.

And send her a Democratic majority. She'll certainly know how to use it.
