This is the most important thing that needs to be addressed alongside the management of COVID.

When you see Garland, who wasn't even a particularly progressive pick for SCOTUS, answer thoughtfully and think that instead you have a woman who wants Gilead and Mr. I Like Beer, allowing further voter suppression would merely attract even "better" justices.

If we can return to a new normal, meaning any progress from where we are at now. Indoor dining, gyms, crowds at sporting events, that’ll look great in the Biden administration

Tho the GQP will try to spin it as 2020 was a great year and now we’ve entered into authoritarian rule!!!

Beating back covid will be a great victory for Biden.

It won’t matter tho if 60% of States suppress the vote.

Unfortunately someone like Joe M won’t care about how he’s viewed by history. He’s set financially and so are his children. There’s no real immediate threat or consequence to him

We’ve seen this in the GQP, they don’t care if the world burns down. They only care about holding on to power.

it has nothing to do with his historical legacy, it's just pragmatism. he's a democrat in a state that voted 70-30 for trump and presumably also wants to keep his job beyond 2022. if he just agrees to everything the admin/party wants without fighting to get anything tangible back for his state he's going to get demolished in two years by a trumpist republican, and we'll be right back to a GOP senate obstructing literally everything.

his hope of being re-elected basically hinges on being able to say to WV voters "see, i didn't just rubber stamp the biden administration/leftist democrats agenda, and isn't that new interstate great?"

This needs to be a independent commission. You cannot have bipartisan when one of that parties tried to kill you

And people are right to give some props to Rep Kinzinger for speaking some truth in regards to Trumpism

But no mistake about it, he still represents a party which seeks to destroy government and pocket the $$$

There’s no reason to believe he’s suddenly an evangelized liberal.

He’s the enemy of my enemy and therefore my friend, and I have no desire to talk shit not praise him. He is the old normal we took for granted.

Great. They tried, it didn't work. No big surprise. Let's get it passed now.

I don't think Manchin gets re-elected in 2022 regardless.

Exactly, so he should be fucking playing his cards like Doug Jones from Alabama.

In certain districts, you get rewarded by being elected and re-elected.

MTG is despicable, it sickens me that she is in Congress.

Just saw that the Capitol police chief is warning that militia groups want to blow up the Capitol when Biden addresses the joint session.

Also March 4th is next week. DC Trump hotel reportedly jacked up their rates for March 4th. Not that they would ever want any association with such people and events.

I don't think so either. Especially since his current term ends in 2024.

That may not save him but his odds are better running in a presidential year. Where he'll try to coattail after 4 years of "pragmatism".
