In a bold and stunning move, Senate Dems tap Schumer as their leader.
OK, far from bold. And far, far away from stunning. As is done in a fraternal organization where the leadership moves "up the chairs", Wall Street's darling is now the Minority Leader in the Senate. Once you become 2nd Vice President at the Elks Lodge, you simply wait your turn to be Grand Poobah (kinda like Her Heinous, btw). Like the generals who insist on fighting the last war. Like an MLB baseball team that hires a manager who has lost at every franchise he's managed (because he's a good 'baseball man'), Chuck Schumer is the Democratic leader in the Senate.
Thirsting for new ideas and a new direction, we get the 'same old, same old'. Not that there was ever much doubt. If there was EVER an exclusive "members only" club, it's the United States Senate. While I truly hope that he does a good job, I'm afraid that his definition of 'a good job' is very different from mine. I don't look for much introspection from the guy who said this during the POTUS general election campaign:
“For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.”
