Thinning the Herd

Richard Cronin:

Both Andrew Cuomo (D - NY) and Gavin Newsom (D -CA) are on the outs, with Newsom subject to a recall election later this year. It’s clear that the DNC doesn’t want a circus of tiresome wanna-bes in 2024. Kamala Harris is the Democrat anointed one. All potential contenders must be eliminated.

It wouldn’t surprise me that several DNC operatives ginned up support for Newsom’s recall.

1 Interesting idea! You could be right. However, if Kamala is the best they have, they are in deep trouble. Democrat voters didn't like her in the presidential primaries, and from my perspective she's not gaining a lot of love in her new job.

She didn't have a lot of positive accomplishments to show for her time as a prosecutor, and she seems to have made no splash in the Senate. And only a rabid partisan, like a "reporter" from CNN or MSNBC would say that she's added a thing to her resume' since becoming VP. Ultimately, voters want results.

2 I agree Dana, but then it may not be the voters she's getting results for, it may be her compliant nature which her unseen bosses (the same as running Joe Biden) want. Like Captain Peachfuzz she is not for doing but for showing.

On the other hand she's not at all likable and if the GOP runs someone who is (like Trump) she would have a tough time.

Also, going from veep to the Presidency is difficult as veep is a useless position "not worth a bucket of warm piss" as John Nancy "Cactus Jack" Garner, one of Roosevelt's veeps, said to reporters (it's often sanitized as "warm spit" because at the time the word piss was considered too vulgar.) It's hard to make your mark as Vice President; you are always thought of as the Beta Male.

Speaking of the Vice Presidency, the Constitution originally called for the veep to be the second highest vote-getting in the race for President. So the President had as his lieutenant the guy he had just fought a bitter race against. Needless to say that didn't work out so well.

Imagine; Trump would have had Hillary as his Vice President!

3 That's true about the way the VP was originally selected. I believe John Adams and Thomas Jefferson weren't friendly at the time. I believe the Founders never factored political parties into their thinking. Certainly the Federalists weren't a strong party, especially when pitted against Aaron Burr's Democratic party -- we have Burr to blame for organized parties, if I'm not mistaken.

But I'm sure the Founders considered that there might well be a rivalry between the two, and that it might be a good thing. Just about everything the Founders put into place in the Constitution was designed to slow government down.

4 I agree Dana. The Founders hoped there wouldn't be political parties and if there were they hoped they would be at each-other's throats. "Gridlock" was precisely what the Founders wanted.
