    Well, if that happens then President Avenatti would throw both Trump and Kavanaugh in prison, that would teach republicans a lesson

    My money is on (and I was right for 2008 when I predicted Bill Richardson was to be the candidate) a Harris - O'Rourke ticket.

    Brown, Bullock, and Hickenlooper have purple cred, but I don't see any of them having a movement to work with. Harris, Booker seem to have the most steam. One name not up there is Gov. Cuomo, though like his father, might not want to put up with the job.

    Well, that's inefficient. If I were President, I'd order other people to do that sort of thing for me and spend my own time doing other stuff. Presidents need to be able to delegate and can't be driving back and forth to prisons all the time.

    Are you saying that presidents shouldn't be able to visit their families?

    Booker is in bed with big money, so he'll probably survive. Biden and Clinton might show up again as well. Kamala Harris has some progressive stances but is authoritarian in a lot of ways (crime, sex workers, drugs, the prison system). There are no great choices.

    Come on, would not you enjoy making an exception for Trump and Kavanaugh?

    Maybe in the evenings, but they should be working during work hours.

    I mostly agree, though Harris is a lawyer so her perception is such that she sees life through an authoritarian lens, much like Obama.

    Harris and Klobachur both strike me as people who are doing what they need to to get through the system and would govern more progressively. That might be very naive of me to think, but I'll have two years to investigate it. That's if they get past the democratic gate-keepers.

    ETA: What neither one is is feble minded.

    No they don't.

    That is the great divide in the US today.

    The divide between those who talk about Jesus and those who have morality.

    The Jesus talkers blame the poor for their poverty.

    They want to kick out the foreigners.

    Bomb the Muslims.
