As I've told others, I'm thrilled to have a Businessman at the helm rather than a Government Lawyer with zero real world experience.

Substitute "Reality Game Show Host" for "Businessman" if you prefer. The end result is the same.

November 2020? Who know... but for now we're doing better in some ways, worse in others, but still on whole heading in a right direction.

With the constant drip....drip...drip of
sexual assault accusations against Biden, articles suggesting that he step aside by the NYT and other outlets, unexplained technical issues with his virtual town halls making Joe and his team look like bumbling fools, does anyone else feel like this is an orchestrated campaign to force Joe off the ticket?

Assuming this is the case, who will replace him, and at what cost to their chance of winning in November?

The senate election is in play. Because the American people are fed up. Just look at the polls at different states.

Hey eye... if Biden loses his spot... who do you think would make a good candidate?

Good question. Michelle Obama?

From what I read the accuser changed her story? Now she says Biden assaulted her, but way back when she did not.

News says Michelle is not interested. But you never know.

Maybe Andrew Yang can get back in there... Ken... go make some calls!

The optimistic side of me wish Yang can get back in there, but the pragmatic side knows the only Andrew that has a chance is Andrew Cuomo.

Like it or not, Andrew Cuomo is the perfect example of the power of the mass mainstream medias.

This is unfortunately how American politics work. Name recognition over nuances & issues.

It may just be me... but I would prefer to see Newsom if we are going to pick from state governors. :)

Any opponent of Newsom need only to show what California has become with our policies of no-bail, drug addiction tolerance, early release of felons, $900 limit before crime becomes punishable, homelessness etc on and on ad infinitum and he's toast. Yes, most of these issues were voted into law by initiative, but the splash they've made on society gets on everyone wet, no matter what.

If Biden goes, one can't trust the DNC machine politicians put push someone new, exciting, and worth voting for. Bloomberg might be floated back up the list if Cuomo says no. Blegh. Bernie will never, ever, EVER get the podium. Too bad, because it's the match up that needs to occur IMHO. Michelle says no now, but we'll see. Other than pushing Hillary back on stage, Michelle O would be a genuine "Hail Mary" type of play.

FYI: I'd say the same thing here if this was the RNC in 2016. They'd burp up Mittens or someone equally as bland to replace Trump had "Access Hollywood" stuck as intended. Disrupting a "peoples choice" candidate any later than July would be a real problem for 2020 Dems, so I'm expecting this to either get the story or the candidate to get buried well before then.

Fun times.

Trump wins or loses based on death toll and economic impact come end of October.

Hence you see the chronic narrative spinning about the best economy ever until we locked it down an the push to suppress frank virus discussion.

If the pandemic re-surges in the fall, he's toast.

His only real hope is the death toll stays barely over 100K and the troll bot look they're counting hospice deaths as covid deaths sticks.

Or they could see how California has done better than NY in controlling the outbreak. :)

I just want someone with better hair in the Oval office. :)

Has anyone noticed that PM Boris Johnson and Trump are like twins? Except Boris doesn't do the comb around.

BoJo is 55. The Tang Menace is 73. BoJo can look at American TV and see his inevitable future.

Not to turn this around, as the CV thread is over in another column, CA hasn't really done miracle work here. The main killer isn't Coronavirus (per-se) but "underlying conditions" which hasten the impact (weight, lifestyle, age, etc) It's not unreasonable to think that Californian's on balance are a bit healthier than those in other states (a theory at this stage...) which trends for a lower death rate. As well we have far more private transportation than functional public transportation. Uber/Lyft/Cab use in NYC + Subways + mass international travel hubs = more cases, more deaths.

Back to politics, Gavin doesn't deserve credit in this case if the above theory holds. We'll see.

Elon Musk for President!

"If somebody wants to stay in their house, that's great and they should be able to," he continued. "But to say they cannot leave their house and that they will be arrested if they do, that's fascist. That is not democratic — this is not freedom. Give people back their goddamn freedom." - Elon Musk
