what if Biden offered Sinema a seat on Federal Appeals Court bench (lifetime)

she would never have to worry about re-election again. She gets all the prestige and attention ---- and she's out of the Senate.

And she has to know she has zero chance of getting elected again in AZ as a D or an R.

5. In the 2022 election.

Until then, the governor (R) makes the interim appointment.

2. Unfortunately, that would hand control of the Senate to the QPublicans.

Gov. Doug Ducey would appoint her replacement.

4. And then we'd have her in a lifetime seat on the court one level below the Supreme Court

 

No, thank you.

6. Bingo

and while the Treason Turtle runs the Senate again, a Democratic victory for the open seat in AZ would not be certain (which Ducey could probably delay or set a date that would be most advantageous to Republicans).

8. Counterpoint: how about Biden NOT give a lifetime federal judgeship to a mentally unstable person?

She seems unstable to me, at least. And I've heard that that's increasingly the perception in AZ.

12. Let's don't do anything like that. No lifetime seat, let her win or lose her seat.

Republicans rewarding nastiness, stupidity and incompetence is why we are in this position. We are better than that.
