The impeachment attempt, seen by some as a soft coup d’etat, continues. At least some “Never Trump” Republicans are expected to join the Democrats in the effort.
Hillary Clinton hints that she’d accept a draft nomination, while snidely accusing Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein of colluding with Russia. Among the leading declared Democratic Presidential candidates, several have shot themselves in the feet.
General “Mad Dog” Mattis is deftly sniping back at the President who dumped him, and smoothly returning to the national stage. I thought Mattis was the most solid of Donald Trump’s appointments, and was very sorry to see him go.
It may be time for Jill Stein to defect to the Democratic Party. And, who knows, since hypocrisy seems to be the ruling theme in the Dems’ philosophy, they might even resurrect Al Franken from #metoo disgrace.
If the impeachment succeeds and Trump is toppled, the Republicans will have to move quickly to find a nominee. General Mattis might have as good a chance as anyone.
And the stars could be in alignment for a uniquely American dream race next year:
Mad Dog 2020 versus Franken/Stein.
