While driving yesterday with my wife the conversation got around to who did I think would be in line to run for the president from the Democrats….
I ran down the list that I thought was credible right now….
I pointed to Elizabeth warren being the favorite for the media right now,,,,
I pointed out that Bernie Sanders was fading fast….
I also added that some in the media where pushing Kamala Harris….
But I admitted that I though Joe Biden is actually the leader of the pack right now in the polling and that he actually had the best chance to grab some of the blue collar, black and even suburban vote….
She smiled at me and shook her head….
We had been talking about Brett Kavanaugh for the last few weeks and she was at a loss why any woman would support his moving up to the nations’ highest court…
She had related to me how most the middle class women she knew where angry at the way Christine Ford had been handled by the Senate Judiciary Committee , Republicans and last off Trump’s final remarks about Al Franken….
While driving I turned and looked at her as she glazed out of the car’s side window…..
She then turned to me and said…..’Warren has no chance…Neither especially does Kamala Harris’…. Who is Black and East Indian….
If there is one thing that Brett Kavanaugh seems to have shown that we agree on ?
It’s that America isn’t ready for a woman President….
…If it’s own lawmakers can’t even consider the complaints and feelings in heir response to sexual misconduct for a male up for a job on Supreme Court in 2018….
There are gonna be protests against Kavanaugh…
There are ALREADY knuckleheads saying that the Democrats should have just shut up and not pitched a fight against Kavanaugh ..That Trump won this and THAT will hurt Democrats in the elections a month away ….
My wife STRONGLY disagrees….
She points out something very true….
Republicans don’t give a shit when they want something…
They use the rules to their advantage…
I add that it was Democratic US Senate Majority leader Harry Reid that the Republicans should thank partly for their victor….
Reid switched the vote TO vote for confirmation in the Senate from 60 senators to a simple majority to help Obama and Democrats get two women on the court…
How where they to know that same rule would be used against Obama to block Merritt garland and help Kavanaugh…
In the end?
My wife VERY happy that Democrats fought this appointment to the court…
She is tired of the ‘Al Gore’ just let’m have thing….
She doesn’t really like when I repeat to here MY basic point….
All the protests and media pushing doesn’t mean much…
The basic is the VOTE…
Voting gets lawmakers elected that YOU want….
Voting next month gives people a chance to elect those who can apply a brake against policies , laws and politics they don’t want….
THAT is the Way…..
And women need to understand and flex on THAT….
