There is one person who could gum up the works of Trump's dictatorship-in-process. And he's not even in elected office. Yet. Joe Biden has said that this election is a battle for the very soul of America. So right now would be a good time for Biden to really flex on this, step up and fire a loud warning shot across the bow of Trump's henchmen. The Rule of Law is coming back in 2021...and it could be coming for them.
Both Clinton and Biden have since, apologized for their votes for H.J. Res. 114 because they did not think at the time that President Bush would use it as an excuse to invade Iraq.

The lesson from 2016 should be, nominate someone who is inspiring to voters and brings with them too little baggage to be buried under. The media types who are Republicans and lean to the center/right or right, are more preoccupied with filling the Dem nomination slot with someone reflecting their more conservative, establishment sensibilities. That is very different from picking the candidate most likely to beat Trump and best bring change to the country.

Joe Manchin, the corporate shill in Democrat clothing who is a U.S. Senator from West Virginia is, among other things, a big fat liar and plainly dishonest to his constituents and all Americans. In another power play, Manchin carpet-bombed multiple...
We will likely see the largest and most diverse field of Democrats running for the presidential nomination. Here is our Way Too Early List of which Democrats may be more or less likely to win the 2020 nomination and why.
"I'm telling you, Hillary's a full blown zombie, she eats brains! If she becomes president, look out! Do you really want a zombie for your President, I mean, come on," Trump exhorted his white male, pale and jagged toothed audience who responded in unison chanting, "Brains!!!"
Superdelegates were added to Democratic primaries after non-establishment candidates George McGovern and Jimmy Carter beat out establishment candidates in 1972 and 1976. It was and is a ploy to allow Democrat elites to overrule Dem voters.
