Pres. Biden needs to offer Sen. Toomey (R-PA) a plum ambassadorship

maybe to the UK or France. He's retiring anyway in 2022. This would allow us to get to 51 votes, which does make a huge difference. Gov. Wolf would be able to appoint his replacement.

I don't think the GOP congressmen will be investigated until AFTER Jan. 20th...

No way the FBI announces that members of the House will be under investigation for helping the rioters until Trump is out of office cause otherwise he would just pardon them.

Is Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Elizabeth Warren, et al, going to sink Lloyd Austin's nomination?

As an African-American, I'm deeply concerned about the blowback that Biden's defense pick is getting from the most liberal Dems in Congress all because of the waiver. They are saying they won't approve the waiver. Is there any danger that he won't get the waiver to become the Pentagon chief?

Frankly, I'm outraged. I know that they want to stay consistent, but this is politically bad. How is Tammy Duckworth going to go to Illinois and look at black voters in the eye in Chicago and be proud that she helped deep six Biden's choice to be the first ever African-American to be defense secretary? If they have issues with the waiver, then don't show up and vote like Republicans do on tough votes. There is nothing good that can come out of what they're attempting. Black voters have a long memory and we won't allow Democratic politicians to vote against a very qualified African-American patriot and get away with it, even if he's confirmed in the end.
