In the unlikely event that Biden can survive the current crisis, or
the longshot that the Dems would entrust the nomination to Kamala, I
wouldn't mind Trump being president.

But Gavin Newsom or one of the other Dem governors will be opposing
Trump, and that's got to be an L for Trump. He is toxic; this was
proven by the 2022 midterms when all of the candidates he embraced did
5-10 points worse than normal Republicans. He single-handedly lost
the Senate 3 times -- 2020, GA runoff, and 2022.

One just hopes that he'll go quietly and fade into the woodwork...yes,
it's a vain hope but what else do we have?
