Billionaire Keeps Pushing to Impeach Trump-Democrats are Rattled-NY Times

An interesting read on Democrats and the 2018 elections. These are two excerpts from the article.

"Ms. Pelosi, who has a longstanding relationship with Mr. Steyer and hosted him in her private box at the Democrats’ 2016 convention, conveyed her concerns to him directly. She told Mr. Steyer in a phone call last fall that impeachment was a profoundly divisive issue and stressed that other matters, like the Republican-backed tax overhaul, were more urgent, according to four people briefed on the conversation."

"The Democratic base appears more receptive: Seventy percent of Democrats favor impeachment hearings, according to an NBC News/The Wall Street Journal poll published last month. Overall, 41 percent of Americans support impeachment hearings — an unusually high number for a president in his first year, but well short of an electoral majority."

SNL Opening Last Night with Bill Murray

The Donna Brazile Problem

When Donna Brazile was caught leaking a debate question in the Democratic Primary she was forced to resign her analyst position at CNN. At that point the Democratic Party should have been officially done with her. Instead, she was not only invited back into the Party she was made interim Chairperson of the DNC! Why would we, as Democrats, reward someone caught making such a publicly ethical breach of trust? I honestly don't know the answer.

Today we're facing a situation where this woman is doing a tell-all about the inter-workings of the Party during the 2016 election. It's extremely embarrassing and I don't think it will end with her book. As Chairperson she undoubtedly had many conversations and was privy to confidential information which she can now leak to the public at large over the upcoming months. Why she is doing it, I don't know. Perhaps she's angry and wants some kind of revenge or maybe she sees it as a way of making money.

Perhaps we will learn from this experience. Elevating someone to a high position of power who we know to be ethically challenged is not only foolhardy, it's the wrong thing to do.
