18. I do believe he does. He should really run for Congress next

Unless of course he is offered a Cabinet position...

26. He would definitely be great to have as a high profile member of Congress

And it would be more doable, at least in the short term, than him getting elected to statewide office in Indiana.

21. Mine too, among those who lasted past the first rounds

I rather like Jay Inslee, though I knew he didn't have enough visibility to win the nomination.

29. This statement, alone

Impresses me with his way of thinking. He seems like a genuinely good person.
We need more of that.

11. I am heartened to see it looks like Dems are close to unity on the game plan for the courts

 

the game plan has been put out there loud and clear and looks like there is widespread support among electeds and the base

Add at least 2 more Justices
make Puerto Rico and DC states
add more appellate and circuit court judges


Finally. At long last. Enough is enough.

19. Lots of bitching about 2020

But there can still be good things about it. The up coming election is an opportunity for positive change. Many people refer this as the year from hell. To me this is a special year because my son graduated high school, started college, and will be voting for the first time. I also had a nephew born this year. It's not all bad.

23. No it's not all bad but Pete is right.. & Not

"bitching" as you put it.

Glad it's been good for you in so many ways. It's been really bad for a lot of us, though. I won't go into detail.

31. I pray that he is correct but I fear ...

that he is not.

We have to win by such overwhelming numbers (both electoral and popular) that there is absolutely NO doubt. We also must take the Senate back.

32. Understand there will be stress and conflict

I'm thinking there will be - for weeks - 2 declared winners to the election. Trump will declare himself the winner and rely on Barr to make it happen in the courts. Polling, election returns, networks will declare Biden the actual winner. How this plays out ... anyone's guess.
