    These are links to the same article in different papers.

    The argument seems to primarily be about DREAMers and the wall, rather than detained migrant families.



    This doesn't really fix the...
  2. Whether he is awful is a different question from...

    Whether he is awful is a different question from whether he's a Nazi or a white nationalist. Nazis are a subset of awful, but as long as he hasn't been part of a group that ordered hundreds of...

    Biden is 78. He is probably not running for another term. He is already older than any Governor in the Untetd States. The most significant American political executive who is older is Carolyn...
  4. No need to shout. It's possible to miss a post,...

    No need to shout. It's possible to miss a post, especially at a period of high activity on the board, like shortly after presidential debate.

    You made a vague reference to a bipartisan plan in a...
  5. I think he means that the Democratic Governor of...

    I think he means that the Democratic Governor of Kentucky might be able to choose Mcconnell's replacement in the Senate.
  6. I don't agree with the barbarism. I have...

    I don't agree with the barbarism. I have personally suggested alternatives (more immigration judges to handle the caseload, a more efficient screening process for asylum hearings.)

    But in order to...
  7. It seems he said "go ahead."

    It seems he said "go ahead."
  8. There is always the possibility that a terrible...

    There is always the possibility that a terrible situation is the least bad option, so everybody needs a solution.

    As for your question on compromising the border, federal courts have ruled that...
  9. I think if they were going Spider-Verse for the...

    I think if they were going Spider-Verse for the next movie, they'd announce it.

    There is a chance they're setting up something big later.
  10. On the topic of separated migrant children, it...

    On the topic of separated migrant children, it seems there are more complaints than policy alternatives. I would be alarmed and angered if someone proposed a solution to the problem that didn't...

    That was pretty nice.

    It isn't going to work all the time. You won't always have people who agree that their opponent is a decent person.

    Both people also benefit. The Republican is ahead by a...
  12. Given that Democrats have a better than even...

    Given that Democrats have a better than even chance of controlling the White House and Congress, I don't think they want to give the minority party tools to place further procedural hurdles.

    It...

    There does not appear to be any evidence that he suspected she was a minor, and she is in her twenties.

    This does not mean he acted appropriately.
  14. If you're correct, you're going to have major...

    If you're correct, you're going to have major bragging rights. Most current polls show Pennsylvania, along with Florida, as one of Trump's best swing states, at least when compared to Arizona,...
  15. If the argument is that "Gore won Florida, flat...

    If the argument is that "Gore won Florida, flat out, full stop" or that Dudya won "a stolen election" it matters whether the Supreme Court made the wrong call, and whether their intervention changed...
  16. Hagel was also one of Obama's Secretaries of...

    Hagel was also one of Obama's Secretaries of Defense. I don't think he was considered for CIA chief.

    David Petraeus was generally considered a Republican, and served as CIA director.

    Jon...
  17. At this point for Trump to win, something very...

    At this point for Trump to win, something very big has to break very soon, or there has to be some kind of systemic polling error. These are possible but unlikely.
  18. I know we've argued about this in the past, but...

    I know we've argued about this in the past, but the reviews suggest that the strategy the Gore campaign pursued would not have come up with enough votes.
    ...
  19. There was an interesting explanation on why the...

    There was an interesting explanation on why the media may exaggerate the significance of "shy Trump voters." Many journalists hang out in social circles where supporting Trump is just not considered...

    The 2000 election wasn't stolen. The electoral college was the established rules.

    It's also not immediately clear that if we did away with the electoral college that the candidates who won that...
  21. It was an opportunity for you guys to say...

    It was an opportunity for you guys to say something positive about someone who most of us are voting for, who will likely be elected President in two weeks.



    It's not going to come to that.
    ...
  22. I understand that Joe Biden wasn't the first...

    I understand that Joe Biden wasn't the first choice for many of the people here, but what do you guys think of his general election campaign? Is he exceeding expectations from when it became clear he...
  23. This is a fair point on some controversies. ...

    This is a fair point on some controversies.

    People do want some level of predictability, and controversial policies can be ingrained once people are dependent on them or of the possibility. For...
  24. We'll see. It's possible Democrats will...

    We'll see.

    It's possible Democrats will dominate for some time. There is the potential advantage that if a Democrat wins in 2024, that candidate (probably Harris) will have the benefit of running...
  25. The problem with the Clarence Thomas and...

    The problem with the Clarence Thomas and Kavanaugh hearings wasn't about Democrats taking allegations seriously, but about how they went about it. For example, both allegations came very late in the...
