6. THAT is what should be the stance

so we don't keep going back and forth with the "off the table" stuff, "well maybe" back to "off the table". The Democratic Party agenda include passing bills dealing with "pocketbook" issues - AND THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THAT. The problem of course is the Senate and Turtle.

So no one should be going around saying that Democrats should focus on <fill in the blank> and making other such bullshit statements because from Day 1, they HAVE.

It's a shame because as a House Speaker, she is expected to do these interviews and press conferences and I expect all kinds of strategizing needs to happen behind the scenes to create backstops if/when they move forward.

I think part of the problem is going back 20-years ago to use the Clinton impeachment as a "precedent" for anything in the future. But there is a HUGE difference between what happened with Clinton and what is happening today with this administration. And nowadays, the "court of public opinion" is very much controlled by the GOP so there needs to be a way to get around that.
