Vox Populli, our weekly live chat about the week’s events begins tonight at 7:00pm PDT. Hope to see you then! AdLib 3 hours ago

Hey glenn! AdLib an hour ago

You there? AdLib an hour ago

Hi Ad and glenn – how are you! choicelady an hour ago

Hey CL! AdLib an hour ago

Hey back atcha, Ad – good to see you. choicelady an hour ago

How are things your way, CL? AdLib an hour ago

OK I guess. I confess to being well and truly knackered taking care of one of our former “tenants” who has independent housing but a bad manager of the building. He also has health problems. I’m exhausted. choicelady an hour ago

Hi Ad and CL–I’m same old, same old. Beautiful weather here in GA right now. glenn an hour ago

How is you Autumn, glenn. I lived in TN for a couple of years and never saw a more gorgeous Fall even compared to New England. Hope yours is that good. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Always doing the good work. But you need your rest and health to help others. AdLib an hour ago

glenn – Glad to hear that! Good early voting weather too! AdLib an hour ago

CL–You are such a kind and caring person. Hopefully a little bit of VOX will lift your spirits. We’re here for you. glenn an hour ago

Hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

Ad – one of the things that emerges from being a do gooder is people need you when they need you. As the Brits say, I got it “sorted out”, but it was a forced march to do so. choicelady an hour ago

hi all! well, happy the last debate is done? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

HEY PPO! Always great to see you! choicelady an hour ago

CL – I get it. But when you can come up for air, you need to take your time to recharge. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – As someone on Twitter said, the joy of our lives is that we’ll NEVER have to listen to Trump debate again! choicelady an hour ago

Ad – I do often want to run away from home. No question about it. choicelady an hour ago

Hopefully, cl! He wants to try again in 2004, so will have his bloody rallies all again, unless of course, he is in jail! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – that matters to me, and I thank you for it! choicelady an hour ago

We didn’t really need that last debate, didn’t seem to change much but it may have cemented what a callous monster Trump is and what a compassionate, reasonable man Biden is. I think from polling, Trump finishes his political career never winning a presidential debate in 2016 abd 2020. AdLib an hour ago

Joe done good! ‘Poor Boys!” pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL–Last week, it was a little too cold for my taste–only 60’s during the day, so even colder at night. This week is lovely–70’s during the day, and 60’s at night. The leaves are turning, and it’s just beautiful. There is a street right outside my neighborhood where there is a row of red maple trees; all approximately the same size that are displaying their fall colors in all their glory. Trying to appreciate the beauty that Mother Nature is providing during these trying times. glenn an hour ago

PPO – I think federal lock up is a pretty good deterrent to campaigning. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Hard to run away from home during COVID though. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–Yes, it is good early voting weather! glenn an hour ago

glenn – oooooo. I’m deeply envious! the only “color” we have is brown from dying leaves due to drought. I love fall. Just not in CA so much. choicelady an hour ago

Hey PPO–I never watch the debates, but I am glad it’s over. Hopefully, in 11 days, the RTLB will be over, too. glenn an hour ago

Ad – yes, but we’re re-thinking going back up to Fort Bragg soon. Not before election day even though we’re voting by mail. We want to be here for good, bad, ugly. Home matters under those circumstances. choicelady an hour ago

glenn – less than one Scaramucci away from election day! choicelady an hour ago

CL–Yay! To never to listen to the RTLB debate again! The next best thing is to never have to listen to him again! glenn an hour ago

Hello…here briefly I think….too much going on….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

couldn’t watch much myself, g, but enough to see same old, same old from RTLB. Joe did what he needed to do. I agree with Ad, not much chane to the needles pinkpantheroz an hour ago

MURPH! choicelady an hour ago

PPO – Trump will be convicted of crimes. If he flees, even more prison time will be waiting for him. Annd I would hope that the ICC would charge him with crimes against humanity for his assaults on people coming to the border. And by 2024, we’ll have commissions already laying out all the crimes committed in Trump’s term. He had a moment and it’s over for good. He will be the most infamous loser and villain in U.S. history. AdLib an hour ago

Murph! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey Murph! AdLib an hour ago

Ad – from your post to God’s inbox. choicelady an hour ago

Hello All MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

CL–I suspect that if you ran away from home, you’d only begin to help people in your own way, no matter where you run to. You can’t outrun your kind, caring nature. glenn an hour ago

CL–Yea, federal lock up will be a good deterrent. Or, he could actually leave the country as he’s threatened to do. Then, he’d probably run a twitter campaign from abroad! glenn an hour ago

glenn – we go to Fort Bragg where yes, of course, I have a very beloved friend with problems. But I CAN spend most of the week there NOT having to help her. I think I want to do that, Of course Fort Bragg has its own Bugaloo Boy problems. So…maybe not. choicelady an hour ago

blown away by the huge numbers early voting. I think this election will be record turnout. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL–Love it! One scaramucci away! glenn an hour ago

PPO – AMEN!!! The numbers are awesome! choicelady an hour ago

Hey Murph–are you still in WI? glenn an hour ago

PPO – My “Poor Boy” puns last night that I tweeted to CL: #poorboys aren’t all that and a bag of chips. #poorboys deserve a bad wrap. #poorboys are in-bread. AdLib an hour ago

Delicious, Ad1 pinkpantheroz an hour ago

LOL Ad – those were GREAT digs at the PoorBoys! choicelady an hour ago

Glenn….I am. Get Out The Vote, Protect the Vote, Tally the Vote….and there are threats to all three here. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

CL–Wherever you go, make sure you tend to your needs, too! glenn an hour ago

Thinking of the image of Proud boys eating Poor Boys – ……………..nope! Is the media still calling the domestic terrorists ‘militias’? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–I’ll add an AMEN to CL’s! glenn an hour ago

CL – Fort Bragg sounds wonderful. Yep, we need to be prepared for some militia nutjob activity after Trump loses. You know, in their bubble, Trumpers think he is going to winn by a landslide? AdLib an hour ago

Post Office is a huge problem….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad–don’t whether to groan or laugh at your puns! glenn an hour ago

glenn – my NEED is unbroken SLEEP. Both my husband and I sleep one night, are up until the dawn the next. Cannot explain it. I never had recurring dreams until recently. I’m sick of them. choicelady an hour ago

The Post office workers Unions should help us there, hopefully. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph–Thank you for working so hard for our democracy. glenn an hour ago

glenn – You can groan at my puns, just as appreciated. AdLib an hour ago

Murph, agree with glenn. You’ve don a fabulous job and deserve much pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL–Oh dear. Hang in there… glenn an hour ago

PPO and Murph – I have a friend, formerly homeless now employed, who works for the PO. He said NO ONE there is letting down the all out effort to get ballots and mail in general where it needs to go. Bless the postal workers of America! choicelady an hour ago

Murph – I think the postal workers will work very hard to get ballots to county clerks in time but late mailers may not be so lucky. This is why I press for using drop boxes. AdLib an hour ago

cl, stress hits people various ways. in one scaramucci, you will sleep again soundly, believe me! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – I am doing the drop box this week. It’s more safe. choicelady an hour ago

Ad–Oh, I definitely appreciate your puns! glenn an hour ago

PPO – this is presuming it’s a landslide. If there is ambiguity, I am looking for border crossings into Canada that aren’t manned. I’m not sure how I’ll get my grandma’s china in, but hey… choicelady an hour ago

CL–Yes to the blessings on our postal workers! glenn an hour ago

Did anyone watch Cuomo on Colbert? What a bulldozer, all over BLoaty McBloatface pinkpantheroz an hour ago

The postal workers have a huge incentive to deliver ballots, a majority of mail-in being for Biden. Trump is already strangling the USPS to kill it off in favor of private sector, they want to keep their jobs too and know Biden and Dems will bail out the USPS…and hopefully get rid of that mandate foor them to fund their pensions into the far future. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – missed Cuomo and glad you saw it. Good name for the Yam Man. choicelady an hour ago

CL–Besides PPO, I have a friend in Australia…thinking I need to check my finances to see if I can go there…. glenn an hour ago

PPO–What is wrong with Bloaty McBloatface’s hands? glenn an hour ago

glenn, a millioin here, a million there, soon adds up. but some country towns are GIVIG homes away to keep the populations up pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL – Great! That’s what I did and make sure you sign up for updates at the SoS website. Got a text saying they collected my vote and would be counting it. Assurinng to know. AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Oh, guess I’ll have to save some more! glenn an hour ago

I would go to NZ because my Dad was there in WW II, and we have a beloved friend there as well. But I have family furniture and ‘stuff’ I’d be bereft without because it’s been handed down from a common ancestor, a “conductor’ on the Underground RR in IL that I’d be devastated to leave behind. It’s not the stuff. It’s the history. choicelady an hour ago

glenn, Melanoma keeps slapping them away. the poor bub is lonely. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad – those CA alerts are very great. We can track our ballots and know they matter. choicelady an hour ago

Deliveries of first class mail in the large metro areas is 42 percent off goal. We are urging direct delivery at county clerk offices and official drop boxes. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

CL – I am connfident that Biden will win by a stronng margin, beyond Trump’s attempts to sue his way into a win. AdLib an hour ago

CL–There’s always shipping containers for your beloved things. glenn an hour ago

glenn, outside Melbourne and sydney, proces are OK. You will do well with US dollars. 70US = 100 AUD now pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – great ideas. I know we advocated putting first class stamps on ballots, but that info means even THAT doesn’t work well. You recommendation is better by far. choicelady an hour ago

glenn – I know, but I have to figure out if I’m up to celebrating Christmas in summer. It’s a whole different world. choicelady an hour ago

Have you seen the phootos of Moscow Mitch looking sick and diseased? AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Oh, sorry. I thought Bloaty McBloatface was McConnell. What’s wrong with HIS hands? glenn an hour ago

I appreciate ad’s thoughts about the motivated postal workers. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad – I thihnk MM took a really bad fall. choicelady an hour ago

Moscow Mitch has joined the Black Hand Gang. Hell, he started it! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL–Believe it or not, we can track our ballots in GA, too. glenn an hour ago

CL….fall from grace? MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Or Elaine Chao slammed his hand in the door. choicelady an hour ago

Mur[h. You have to HAVE grace to fall from it. choicelady an hour ago

CL….truth… MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – that’s superb to know about your ballots! choicelady an hour ago

Murph – Dante needs another circle of hell for these people. choicelady an hour ago

PPO–Well, that’s interesting about the currency exchange. When we were there in the 90’s, it was the opposite. glenn an hour ago

CL….and at center of that circle huge stacks of blazing dollars that burn perpetually roasting the denizens of that domain. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO – you may have incentivized my southern move! choicelady an hour ago

cl, even better in NZ! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph – that IS how I envision that new circle, yes! choicelady an hour ago

PPO – I could do NZ, esp. since I have a very dear friend there. choicelady an hour ago

How is it that the polls are closing if Biden doing so well and Trump so badly? I do not get it. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–How many official drop boxes are there? I know TX has limited drop boxes to one per county. How difficult is it for people to travel to the drop boxes? I’m just assuming WI is rural, except for the mero areas. Here in my county, there is only one drop box. Fortunately, it’s not too far for me. glenn an hour ago

Murph – 538 does not reflect a narrowing even in key states. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Moscow Mitch looks more like he was bitten by a zombie. AdLib an hour ago

Ad – how could you tell? MM IS a zombie! choicelady an hour ago

murph, ignore the polls. ulcer material. I did hear that the GOP have had massive voter reg in the rust belt states, but so have Dems. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Yeah, MM’s inside blackness is coming out on the outside. glenn an hour ago

PPO – I trust 538 on national stuff. They aren’t worried. choicelady an hour ago

CL and Murph–Like your images! glenn an hour ago

Another battle here is to combat the tidal wave of misinformation that blacks and Hispanics are soaking in that offers seemingly plausible and even valorous reasons not to vote. “Making a statement….standing up for principles….not being bought…..” MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

agree cl. MM, btw, looks as if he is in blood thinners, like warfarin. that can cause bruising like that. then again, deliciously, Warfarin is a Rat Poison! Hee Hee pinkpantheroz an hour ago

CL…538 got it wrong in 2016….I worry. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – I think we all are reduced to basics in this discussion! LOL! choicelady an hour ago

Murph, weren’t they right on the popular vote, but not the college? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Murph–A friend once told me that “making no decision is still making a decision.” I feel the same way about not voting…it’s not “standing on principle” to not vote. It’s abandoning your principles, IMO. glenn an hour ago

Murph – I know, but not really. We all worry about fraud at the polls from the election officials AND Russian hacking, choicelady an hour ago

Murph – The polls aren’t closing. AdLib an hour ago

PPO….polling let us down so badly in 2016 as an accurate predictor of outcome that it is hard not to ingest them MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – I say everyone who doesn’t vote or goes 3rd party is a fascist collaborator. choicelady 44 minutes ago

read about voter fraud in one state. the person asked to be sent an absentee ballot for her mother. Turns out Maw was deceased for a while. she is GOP, btw. pinkpantheroz 44 minutes ago

Mur[h – also we don’t have a “Comey letter” this time. choicelady 44 minutes ago

PPO….the electoral college predictions gave Hillary a rather distinctive advantage. MurphTheSurf3 44 minutes ago

CL and Murph–I’m hoping that the RTLB has finally buried himself with Hunter Biden nonsense. glenn 43 minutes ago

Murph – National polling in 2016 was close, predicted Hillary by 4% and she won by about 2%. The Comey thing depressed the vote for her. No such thing happenning to Biden. AdLib 43 minutes ago

All voter FRAUD has been GOP in the past 4 years. choicelady 43 minutes ago

Glenn…I agree…any action that is not for Biden…is for Trump. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

glenn – I think every single thing Trump has done has backfired on him.’ choicelady 42 minutes ago

Glenn….Joe handled the Hunter thing very well last night. MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

You gotta hand it to Mitch:

AdLib 42 minutes ago

Murph – yes he did! choicelady 42 minutes ago

The attempt to blacken hunter’s name backfired, bigly! Now, Rudi’s knickers are in a twist, because he spread the disinformation. fox gleefully did the same! pinkpantheroz 41 minutes ago

CL–Tell it like it is, girl! glenn 41 minutes ago

MM seems to have taken a very bad fall, sprained his hand, and is pretending he’s perfectly OK. Nope! choicelady 41 minutes ago

Ad….I just seeing the polling heading into that territory, going down when events would seem to indicate building support….yes? MurphTheSurf3 41 minutes ago

Murph – I don’t see ANY polls going down. What ones are you reading? choicelady 40 minutes ago

I don’t watch PHux . Did they actually come out and claim trump won by 70%??????? pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

CL….Biden’s leads in several battle grounds have been reduced…. MurphTheSurf3 39 minutes ago

CL–I don’t agree that all of the RTLB’s machinations/lies have backfired on him. For some reason, he still has supporters (other than his devil spawn and their spouses). He’s gotten away with so much in his presidency….just hoping he finally gets his just due. Which would be a prison sentence. glenn 39 minutes ago

Guys – I am falling asleep as I type. This has been a hellacious day, and I need to go to sleep. I’m dumping out on the grounds I can’t type and cannot even think. Have a GREAT week everyone! Murph – enjoy WI and carry on! choicelady 38 minutes ago

Good night all! choicelady 38 minutes ago

Murph – Yes, there are a lot of really poor polls, not the regular ones, favoring Trump that have been coming out with very skewed polling. The best indicator is the amount of early voting. It is majority Dem and it is huge. Youth early vote is massive compared to 2016. Trust what we’re seeing and Trump’s and the GOP’s panic. Their internal polls show Trump and the GP will lose big. AdLib 38 minutes ago

Night CL! AdLib 38 minutes ago

CL thanks. I am leaving early too. Dawn patrol tomorrow. MurphTheSurf3 38 minutes ago

Murph–I agree. Biden has handled that very well. What did you think of his proposal to form a committee to study what to do about SCOTUS? glenn 38 minutes ago

I so hope that Joe’s campaign has recruits all ready to jump into action the minute he is confirmed. pinkpantheroz 38 minutes ago

good night, Murph and Cl pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

Ad….always the optimist…..I, on the other hand,…… MurphTheSurf3 37 minutes ago

‘Nite Murph and CL glenn 36 minutes ago

Did you all read about the changes in Civil Service regs from the WH that reclassify a number of careerist making it easy to fire them AND classifies a number of appointees as protected. MurphTheSurf3 36 minutes ago

I think Murph is gone, so I’ll ask you, Ad and PPO. What do you think of Biden’s proposal re SCOTUS? glenn 35 minutes ago

Glenn…a commission as he described it is precisely what must be done. MurphTheSurf3 35 minutes ago

Latest 538 poll averages, Biden is steady at 6.5% in WI. AdLib 35 minutes ago

Naw….I am still here….addicted… MurphTheSurf3 35 minutes ago

Murph–oh, glad you’re still here! I agree. I think it’s a great idea. glenn 35 minutes ago

Commission is ideal – input from all sides pinkpantheroz 34 minutes ago

Ad….wasn’t he at 9 two weeks ago and wasn’t Hillary at 5 in ’16 MurphTheSurf3 34 minutes ago

Murph – I think Trump’s corruption of the Civil Service rules can be reversed instantly by Biden and any people fired could be rehired. AdLib 34 minutes ago

the main thing I want is the backlog of stuff delayed by the Senate to be cleared pronto pinkpantheroz 33 minutes ago

Murph–Sometimes, though, I wish Dems could be so blatantly hypocritical, or at least lead the news cycles around by the nose, as repubs are so skilled at doing. After spending at least 10 years packing the courts, they get the news media to hound Biden about whether he is going to do the same. It just blows my mind! glenn 33 minutes ago

Murph – Nope, that was a single poll. 538 shows Biden at 6.9% two weeks ago. AdLib 33 minutes ago

Ad. I suspect you are correct but what I think they are hoping to do is create total chaos in the transition. MurphTheSurf3 33 minutes ago

Glenn….it is time, in my mind, for Dems to take up arms and torches and go after the GOP MurphTheSurf3 32 minutes ago

Murph, about the polls, isn’t it normal for things to tighten a bit as polling day gets closer? pinkpantheroz 31 minutes ago

Murph – Hillary’s lead was up and down in the swing states and after the Comey BS, which was at this time in 2016, she nosedived farther than polls could track. Not the case with Biden. AdLib 31 minutes ago

Ad….thanks. MurphTheSurf3 31 minutes ago

Murph, agree, but I think it is also time to stomp on the domestic terrorists and somehow de-legitimise them. pinkpantheroz 30 minutes ago

Murph–There’s no doubt in my mind that the RTLB will create total chaos in the transition. Even when he’s not trying, he creates total chaos. It’s his “management style”. Create chaos, take no responsibility for the chaos he created, then sit back and complain/whine that everyone is picking on him for the chaos he created. glenn 30 minutes ago

My confidence in the polls is based on the long term trends and they have stayed amazingly steady most of the year. Trump has ever been leadinng and he has lost so many voters from 2016. AdLib 30 minutes ago

PPO- it is normal to see tightening but that is usually because both sides are making effective arguments and shifting undecideds. Trump is doing awfully and there are few undecided leaving me wonderidng. MurphTheSurf3 30 minutes ago

PPO….agree……terrorism from the left or the right has the same target….the middle. MurphTheSurf3 29 minutes ago

Murph, ask yourself – having seen the ruination of the Us from electing a dumb bastard, is the American public game to repeat their error? I hope not. pinkpantheroz 28 minutes ago

glenn – Agreed. Trump’s vindictiveness is primal. He will do all he can to screw with Biden and sabotage him. But Biden’s team is expecting that. AdLib 28 minutes ago

Glenn…chaos candidate…chaos president-elect…chaos president….chaos ex president. MurphTheSurf3 28 minutes ago

PPO…..no one ever went broke underestimating the native intelligence of the voter…..so uninformed….so indolent and so prejudiced as a rule. MurphTheSurf3 27 minutes ago

Murph–agree completely. The GOP in its present state, needs to be torched. And, if Dems do take the Senate, House, and the Presidency, then a committee should be formed to look into the corruption of repubs who helped to enable the main corrupters. glenn 26 minutes ago

I am now thinking though, if Trump loses by a big margin as I think he will, if Repubs in Congress and his Admin will abandon his hysteria to sue and overturn the election. AdLib 26 minutes ago

OK, Murph,glenn, ad. Off I go to help Fergie -tough going, but medically a bit better. pinkpantheroz 26 minutes ago

Murph–Don’t know if you all follow him but Jim Wright of Stonekettle Station says if you’re still undecided at this point, then you don’t believe in democracy. glenn 25 minutes ago

Here is an interesting tid bit fro Morticia who seems to have some good sources….she says that the Joint Chiefs informed Trump via the Secretary of State that they hoped he did not put them in a position where they would be required to weigh the legitimacy of an order from him. MurphTheSurf3 25 minutes ago

One last point Ad. the remaining shellshocked GOpers will dropkick trump to the bleachers as soon as they possibly can. pinkpantheroz 25 minutes ago

PPO–Take care of Fergie, give her our best. Take care of yourself, too~ glenn 24 minutes ago

PPO – You’re addressing reason but the thing about Trump voters is that they are literally cult followers, not reasoned people. They were supplemented by a segment of poorly informed or statement oriented voters in 2016, just enough to get him over the top then but they have left him this year. AdLib 24 minutes ago

Glenn…I do not know that source. I will look it up. MurphTheSurf3 24 minutes ago

Take care PPO, hi to Fergie! AdLib 24 minutes ago

thanks ad. cheers all pinkpantheroz 24 minutes ago

Murph – That is reassuring to hear from the Joint Chiefs! AdLib 23 minutes ago

Well…his respite was fun. I am off to my slumber so I can get at it in the morn. MurphTheSurf3 23 minutes ago

See you next week….on the eve of our redemption or our destruction. MurphTheSurf3 23 minutes ago

Take care, Murph! Thanks for all your good work in WI! AdLib 23 minutes ago

Oe Vox before the election! AdLib 22 minutes ago

Ad….that was my read as well. MurphTheSurf3 22 minutes ago

Ad–It seems that many repubs are now abandoning the sinking RTLB. I think many of them are looking to save their own skins, so I don’t think they will support the RTLB in overturning the election. Although….I wouldn’t put anything past McConnell and Graham. glenn 22 minutes ago

One AdLib 22 minutes ago

I agree, the writing is on the wall ad the Repubs can see it. Trump is going to lose in a landslide and they will get buried too. Standinng with him in challenging the election would be suicide. AdLib 21 minutes ago

Murph–The Joint Chiefs have already signaled their unwillingness to support the RTLB in his illegal ways. As you know, CL has said many times that they won’t do that. glenn 21 minutes ago

I’m actually less worried about the militias marching and protesting after the election. There will be some protests but I think they will peter out before long. As millions fill the streets celebrating the ennd of Trump! AdLib 19 minutes ago

Murph–Jim Wright is great. You can see his writings on FB, Twitter, and his essays at Stonekettle Station. He’s a retired Navy CPO, and he definitely tells it like it is! glenn 19 minutes ago

Ad–I, too, am worried about the militias. I do think the Biden/Harris DOJ is going to have to be especially vigilant. Even though their marches may peter out, they will go underground, and continue to create chaos if they are not somehow disbanded/arrested. glenn 17 minutes ago

You heard about the 19 year old male who had weapons and explosives in a van and was planing to assassinate Biden? AdLib 16 minutes ago

Ad–well, suicide works for me for some repubs. It would save the country a lot of glenn 16 minutes ago

Oops, missed Murph leaving. Guess it’s just you and me, Ad. glenn 15 minutes ago

Yeah, I heard about that young man. Those are the people I worry about the most. The ones in the shadows. glenn 14 minutes ago

The GOP needs to be crushed in the election, a unity Dem government needs to pass a new Voting Rights Act to prevent all this sabotage and admit DC and PR as states to help fix representation of Dems in government. AdLib 14 minutes ago

Just like with Obama, my underlying concern in the run up to election day is for the safety of Biden and Harris. They have SS protection and should be fine,,,but I worry a little. AdLib 13 minutes ago

Oh, I agree completely. It’s going to be a very busy administration for Biden/Harris, as well as Congress. They need to work closely together to stomp the current GOP and it’s insidious policies into the ground! glenn 12 minutes ago

Agreed again. Not only in the run up, but during the transition period as well. Especially when you know the RTLB is going to be riling everything up. glenn 11 minutes ago

I think though that Biden would hesitate to support killing the filibuster and ignoring the Repubs in The Senate to pass all the bills needing to be passed, including COVID aid. The Senate Dems will have to do it anyway. AdLib 10 minutes ago

Well, my friend, I think I’ll call it a night. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you next week at the last VOX before the election. Are you going to have a live event on election night? Do you think we’ll know anything for sure that night? glenn 10 minutes ago

Yes, all the way through Jan 20th. AdLib 9 minutes ago

Yes, I think Biden may give in to some repub nonsense, so Congress will have to stay strong. Oh, one other question…do you think Pelosi will retire if we get a Dem administration? glenn 8 minutes ago

Yes, we will have an Election Night Vox. And yes, if Biden wins FL, I think the election will be called that night. Or if the margins are as big as they look now everywhere, it will be called. AdLib 8 minutes ago

Hope you’re right…. glenn 7 minutes ago

Pelosi promised that she would step down after this year from Speaker. If she keeps her word, it would be great to have a bit more progressive Dem in that spot. And I’d love it if Warren took over The Senate. Schumer is worthless. AdLib 6 minutes ago

Agreed on all points. I saw a pic of Schumer today, and he does not look good. May have just been the pic, but he is looking gaunt. glenn 5 minutes ago

Okay, I’ll bite…which progressive Dem would you like to see in the Speakership? glenn 5 minutes ago

Kind of tired oof these old and old school Dems in charge. Pelosi has been the exception, she’s been very effective. But these Establishment Dems have otherwise been weak. AdLib 4 minutes ago

I could see Adam Schiff. I’d love Katie Porter but she’s too new. AdLib 3 minutes ago

But I hope it won’t be another mediocre Dem like Steny Hoyer. AdLib 3 minutes ago

See great minds think alike. I like Schiff too. I like his measured, careful way of speaking and thinking. He doesn’t hesitate to call things the way they are, but he is civil and measured in calling it out. glenn 2 minutes ago

Yes, he’s smart, unafraid and a very good strategic thinker. AdLib 2 minutes ago

Alright, thanks for these discussions. They do make my week. I’m going to sign off now. Take care, see you next week. glenn a few seconds ago

It needs to be Dems who want to get a lot done. AdLib a few seconds ago

Same here, always look forward to it and chatting with you here! Have a great weekend! AdLib in a few seconds
