Re: Implanting Bill Gates's Micro-chips In Brains For Over 20 Years!

NYT opinions pretty much all “Biden needs to drop out.”

May you live in interesting times!

I don’t see him winning, absent a sharp turn around. They seem to imply Harris. Who could be Veep? Other than Whitmer I don’t know anyone, and I don’t think they’d do two women?

The country is clearly pretty divided, but I'm not really getting why Biden should be doing worse than in 2020, and abortion/IVF is a tailwind for him. What am I missing?

I didn't watch the debate -- Tim Weah's red card against Panama and the rest of that game was enough for me.

One dude has been convicted of 34 felonies, is under indictment for a bunch more, is being protected by a supreme court super majority he appointed that is slow walking an slam dunk decision to prevent him from facing trial before the election, was adjudged a rapist in a civil case and faces hundreds of millions of damages for misconduct, but the other guy needs to drop out.

Interesting indeed.

Biden isn't dropping out.

ETA: And the Court says, "Nixon did nothing wrong."

I believe the point was we really don’t want the bad guy you described elected. And someone babbling could be easier to beat. Although one editorial questioned if he is competent to be President. I’ll vote for him, you’ll vote him, but there are undecided people and people thinking 3rd party and people thinking “our choice is two really old guys with clear mental issues, I think I’ll skip this one.”

Harris is candidate is my guess. Her chances? Even money. I don't buy these Trump favorable polls. He won by freak luck in 2016. I cannot see how he's dominant eight years later, particularly up against the Democratic Party's ground game and mail in voting.

Sooner or later. I don't love him, but I think his political strengths are massive, and underrated by the commentariat.

It doesn't seem like Biden wants to step down.

If he does, it's got to be Harris, because she is the VP and because her supporters in the Democratic Party -- who are key constituencies -- would feel betrayed, legitimately, if anyone else were elevated above her.

JB Pritzker! I'm biased though - I've met him and he is a super nice guy.
