About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

I just saw on MSNBC, the caption "U.S. sees 80% increase in virus cases in 2 weeks".

And "U.S.records more than 48K new coronavirus cases".

I am amazed at the rapid uptick of the numbers just during the 11am hour. Cases worldwide AND here in the US, were up by more than a thousand, just within a four-minute reading.

Welcome to DU, SpaceNeedle!

I think he still trusts his gut, and thinks he'll win again. I suspect he's counting on Vlad's help again, like last time. He reasons that he'll get away with this, too, because that's just how it's always worked out for him.

But then again, even if Pence gets to SAY he was "president" for a day or a week or whatever, he'll have an asterisk by his name as well, AND perpetual questions to face as to why, AND it will likely K.O. any hopes he has of running for President on his own. He'll be the "he pardoned trump" dude, and will forevermore be known for that. Gerald Ford had to run against that, too. And he was beaten by Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Welcome to DU, C OH Dem!

That's how Nixon got away with it. And one of the main reasons the man who pardoned him failed to win election in his own right, two years later. All you heard, during that campaign, from people commenting or talking with friends and family, was "...he pardoned Nixon." All things being equal, for many voters, between Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter was "...he pardoned Nixon."

Most of America REALLY wanted Nixon to face justice. Exile wasn't enough. And then he did a David Frost interview that aired internationally, so he didn't stay invisible for long.

I bet he'd make a run for it.

Thing is - he's so deeply invested in denial. And almost everybody around him remembers 2016 and all the signs that Hillary Clinton would win. And he came from behind and squeeeeeeaked out a "win." I think he might gamble on going for it.

And I hope so, because I'm afraid the Pence thing would be lethal for us. It would stop the hemorrhaging of moderates and conservative-leaning independents. The "Christian right" would leap at it and almost literally force its congregations to the polls to vote. Pence would be acceptable enough to all the wavering potential voters who are now looking to defect. TONS of these folks are party-over-country. TOO many.

But I could see it happening AFTER a very unfortunate Election Night for the donald. Could even happen ON Election Night, assuming it starts to become clear that Biden's gonna take it. We might just see donald disappear - except I'd also expect he'd fight the results, call them fake, call them a hoax, that he really won (without producing any evidence), and spread all kinds of verbal mess all over everywhere, from physical yowling to tweeting.
