Our new leader

My friends and fellow Democrats, I believe we have found our candidate.  Hakeem Jeffries (who the heck was he until a few days ago?) has just put the spotlight on himself with his electrifying speech before the House about what the Democratic Party stands for.  If you haven't seen it, I urge you to check it out on YouTube: 

It is both amusing and chilling to watch the Dem. side of the aisle applaud his speech enthusiastically, while the Rep. side sits stonily.  How can they not applaud for what he has just said, about putting the people before politics, the Constitution over the cult, inclusion over isolation?   Well, of course I understand it's because he is calling out the Republican Party for how they have behaved in the past six+ years.  But still, for them not to applaud makes it look as though they believe in politics over people, the cult of Trump over the Constitution, isolation over inclusion.  Aren't they embarrassed?  Aren't they ready to change?

I would vote for a Jeffries-Buttigieg ticket in an instant.  I'm ready to vote for them right this second.  I feel politically hopeful and elated for the first time in quite a while.  


  1. YES!! A perfect ticket to run too.

  2. Loved Jeffries' entire speech -- his penchant for alliteration and truth telling, his tribute to Nancy Pelosi, his enthusiasm. So refreshing and uplifting. xoA <3
