The Saturday Triad—the newsletter of newsletters—is off this week. You should go enjoy a long weekend and forget reading about politics.
But if you’re driving somewhere and need something to listen to, I’ve got you covered.
I’m unlocking the latest edition of The Secret Podcast which we produce twice a week exclusively for Bulwark+ members. In this episode, Sarah Longwell and I talked about Biden’s big speech and the possible inevitability of a Trump indictment.
Here’s a 4 minute preview of the show.
You can listen every week if you become a Bulwark+ member. People seem to really like it, fwiw.
And if you have a longer drive, here’s this week’s Beg to Differ podcast featuring Meghan McArdle. Sonny Bunch guest hosts along with Linda Chavez, Bill Galston and Damon Linker.
I don't know where to put this, so I'll just do it here.
If Stacey Abrams wins her race, does she really become a contender for President in 2024? I find that difficult to bet money on.
What I do see is her being a viable replacement for Harris in a 2nd Biden admin. I think we agree that the problem with Harris is Biden can't get rid of the first female person of color VP. But maybe that's true, *unless* he can replace her with another one. Maybe?
I'm happy to hear why this is wrong, but...
I think Abrams would take it.
I think Harris would also play along in exchange for a Federal Bench appointment.
Abrams is from a state that Biden could use a stronger lead in.
After a successful term as VP Abrams then has a more reasonable shot at POTUS, which is a thing given the shallow bench in the Dem Party right now.
What am I missing?
And why aren't you BBQing right now?
You guys rock. Keep on keeping on.
