As a lifetime Liberal Democrat, I am deeply concerned about the confrontations that our president is facing in Congress (and the possibility that he may be worn out and in despair before his first term in office is finished... and thus the possibility that he might bow out and not pursue a 2nd term. We really need a reckoning with the Republican's in Congress -- and we need to push much harder to increase the number of voting Democrats in our national constituency. I'm afraid to think of what is developing in this country. It's not above the realm of possibility that our democracy could be irrevocably damaged -- even destroyed -- by the unpatriotic, selfish and petty confrontations with the Democrats in our Congress over this first term of Joe Biden's presidency. It truly scares me! thank you for your continuing prescient evaluations of what really matters in America's evolving political struggles, Mr. Scholl. Your excellent strategic analysis here is excellent -- as always!
