Response to Warren DeMontague (Reply #34)

36. I know.

That would be a far better situation.

But I would hate to lose a single US Senate seat for a VEEP appointment. We are as fucked in 2018 as the GOP is this year, just going by the numbers. If we take back the senate this year, we cannot afford to lose any seats we hold. Because in two years, it may all turn around yet again. That is my metric. We need to not only gain the senate majority, we need to hold it. Removing Dem senators to serve as VEEP, especially our brightest and most talented, accomplishes nothing but weakening the very body of government which we desperately need in our corner.

Witness our recent SCOTUS vacancy. How's that working out for us?

QED.

My best to you.
