Someone finally taking POTUS duties at the WH?

Just looking for other opinions...

Wondering if White House people are finally taking the reins -- thinking that Pence will be or is "acting President" for important topics. This after in the press conference 2/26 I notice the poor performance of DT, the COVID crisis is turned over to Pence, and that mystery Barr visit to the Senate. Also, at the press conference the actual head of health expressed relief and happiness to work with Pence -- not at all distressed (and that detail surprised the press).

At the press conference, DT came to life with the q&a, and they all had so much fun that the press and DT agreed to do more press conferences. I noticed that this very important press conference announced for mid-afternoon was NOT carried by any over-the-air networks. DT was happy and the others on stage seemed relieved.

My thanks to Washington Post who didn't interrupt the conference for talking heads: [link:http://|

Any thoughts on whether things are finally changing even a little real governing going to happen? Whoever sold to DT that Pence had that governor HIV experience (though I understand that Pence under performed for HIV) was a genius.



WAPO opinion on context of Klobuchar talking with Buttigieg (2/19/2020 debate)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/02/20/forget-minnesota-nice-amy-klobuchars-rage-is-exactly-what-she-needs-right-now/|

Henry Olsen opinion piece describes the experiences of women in the workforce to understand the different opinion of what happened and what should come next. Most resonant sentence: "Every woman who has ever had to compete with a Pete Buttigieg at work now knows that Klobuchar knows them because she is them."
