    With the confusion of mail-in ballots, and potential uneven voting patterns there is also the potential for chaos. For example, if Republicans are more likely to vote in-person, and Democrats more...
  2. The majority of voters have made up their mind,...

    The majority of voters have made up their mind, likely before the election started.

    A good chunk of the country votes straight ticket Republican, and a good chunk votes straight ticket Democrat.

    Bass does appear to still have allies within the party pushing for her.

    I don't think the scientology speech would matter to voters, most of whom don't care about Tom Cruise's weird friends.

    It does depend on who Biden picks.

    Duckworth (who lost limbs in war) and Bass (whose only daughter died in a car accident) would be poor choices to attack personally.

    With other candidates, it...

    I'm guessing it's more about vetting than taking attention away.

    A veep candidate allows for a new high-profile surrogate to talk about Trump's shortcomings.
  6. When the election comes, no one is going to care...

    When the election comes, no one is going to care if Biden announced a running mate on August 1st or August 14th. They might care if he makes a choice too early, and missed something big in the...

    The problem is that the party in the White House is not going to be inclined to do things to limit their own power.

    There could be a bipartisan consensus on these kinds of reforms, as Republicans...

    The electors are generally told to vote for whoever won their state. If one state has 25% turnout and another has 65% turnout, it doesn't really affect the electoral college. The state with higher...

    The New York Times screwed up twice today.

    A piece by Maureen Dowd suggested it's been 36 years since the Democratic party ran a man and a woman on a presidential ticket together, ignoring that...

    What do you mean by national redistricting based on geography?

    I suspect elected Vice Presidents would be a bad idea.

    It creates more incentives for impeachment, if it's recognized as a method...

    He did not seem to be reckless about Covid.

    But it also seems to have been a false positive.

    Tom Cotton's 43. If he gets in during a bad election, he may stay in office for a long time.

    I'm sure I've written about it before, but my favorite alternative to total public funding is what New...

    I don't think we need it for legislatures. For one thing, there isn't one person who has the power the way it would be in the leader of an executive branch. And unlike with the federal courts, the...

    A further problem with Trump is that the bench is pretty weak of the people who would be willing to serve in his administration in a second term.

    It's interesting that this isn't enough for some...

    Some Biden supporters are suggesting he should have major conditions before agreeing to a debate (IE- agreeing to a fact-checker to review comments at the end of it) which could backfire by giving...

    We'll find out eventually.

    Sometimes speculation is based on useful information, like who is being vetted and who has advocates in high places. It does appear that Karen Bass, Tammy Duckworth and...

    Most of the titles existed so there would be more Spider-Man titles, and occur at roughly at the same time as the Amazing Spider-Man issues published at the same time.

    From the discussions, it does seem that his short-list evolved. Karen Bass, Val Demings and Susan Rice weren't seen as major contenders in the beginning.

    Earlier speculation was about Klobuchar,...

    Gallup has done a poll of preferences in policing policy, and sorted it by race. About 80 percent of African Americans don't want to see a reduction in policing in their area.

    Being friends with someone whose political views are unlike yours is typically not a problem, but choosing to honor them in the Congressional record is a little weird.
