Andrew Stein founded the Democrats for Trump in 2016. As odd as that might seem, it shows that there is still some sanity in the Party that in recent years has been living up to its symbol/mascot. Stein observes:
• President Trump’s pro-growth policies have revived the stagnating U.S. economy, and he deserves a second term. But to have the best chance of re-election, he should replace Vice President Mike Pence on the ticket with Nikki Haley.
He says he means no disrespect for VP Pence but –
• Mr. Trump’s greater obstacle to re-election comes from politically moderate suburban women, many of whom see him as divisive.
• It’s too late for Mr. Trump to revamp his political personality. But with the 2016 election in the past, Nikki Haley on the ticket could tamp down the antipathy for Mr. Trump that seems to afflict so many moderate and Republican-leaning women.
Stein has a point here. Contrast Haley with Elizabeth Warren, whose whining delivery makes one expects her to burst in tear any minute. Or the other two most prominent females (who are polling in single digits—Harris’ high point appears to be 7%, while Gillibrand barely reaches 1%, if that).
I fear that the Dems might actually nominate Biden with one of the aforementioned triumfeminate (or is it triummulierate? Gary B. might have the answer) as VP in the hope that age or the Grim Reaper catches with him during his tenure. Rather macabre, I admit, but wouldn’t put it past them.
