5. Not sure "they" have what it takes,

"they" being the Republicans who could but won't clean up their mess. It requires a certain measure of honor mixed with integrity, and all of them squished together couldn't produce a drop of that at this point. Not to mention that they have polluted the courts, including the highest court, rendering the judicial system diseased for generations.

So it may or may not be giving the media too much credit to think that maybe MAYBE they look to the Democrats because there is zero reason to expect anything useful from the scraps of what used to be the Republican party. Maybe it could be construed as a bassackwards recognition that Democrats still demonstrate some real belief in oaths of office, along with active commitment to things like truth and justice and accountability. Seriously, when the place is on fire you go to the neighbor with the functioning hose, not the guy who chopped up his hose to make chewtoys for his kids.

Or maybe the media are just being idiots.
