Democratic party supporters are already looking towards the 2020 election, hoping for a Senate “showdown” between the two former First Daughters Chelsea Clinton and Caroline Kennedy.
“And we’re told that it’s more than just fantasy football for liberals who have nothing else to look forward to,” the New York Daily News reported on Friday.
Should Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) run for president in 2020, it’s rumored that both Clinton and Kennedy would vie for the vacant Senate seat.
In 2015, Clinton told Sky News, “Absolutely, I’d consider it one day,” when asked if she would run for office.
The democrat party is old. Really old. As he headed out the door, Harry Reid remarked that in 2020 the democrat party would be an “old folks home”:
“It depends on who’s running. It appears we’re going to have an old folks’ home. We’ve got [Elizabeth] Warren; she’ll be 71. Biden will be 78. Bernie [Sanders] will be 79.”
Old. Unfortunately, the graying of the democrat party is really starting to become painfully obvious. Dementia is insidious. It creeps up on you surreptitiously. It began showing up a few years ago when democrat Hank Johnson (D) expressed a concern about Guam:
democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) believes she is part American Indian
Nancy Pelosi (D) thinks George Bush is still President
hillary clinton (D) wants to do away with men
And Maxine Waters (D) wants Donald Trump impeached because Vladimir Putin is invading Korea.
Notice that she had trouble with that city in Syria? I’ve heard that Waters thinks Aleppo is one of the Marx Brothers.
A mind is a terrible thing to lose. And to think that this is the future of the democrat party.

Now that a federal appeals court panel has upheld the freeze on President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and immigration, he will likely have his first case before the U.S. Supreme Court in the not too distant future. This may have been an unforced error on the part of the President. While I believe it was wrong and counter-productive for President Trump to belittle the Washington state judge and suggest that even a “bad high school student” would understand the law, the media, in their hyper-hostility toward Trump, are demonstrating their complete double standard. Where was their criticism of Obama when he attacked and pressured the courts to rule in his favor, or condemned them after rulings went against him? The press was missing in action.
President Obama wasn’t shy about criticizing the courts. He did so during his 2010 State of the Union address where he criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United. “With all due deference to separation of powers,” said  Obama, “last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that, I believe, will open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections.” Justice Samuel A. Alito made news by mouthing “Not true” in response to the president’s comments.
Just “two days before oral arguments” in the Obamacare case known as King v. Burwell, writes  Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law in Houston, Obama told Reuters, “In our view, [there was] not a plausible legal basis for striking [the IRS rule] down.”
