Caren, I think you've mentioned this before, but Chuck Schumer is a bad Senate majority leader. First, he's too entangled with large donors. His daughters work for Amazon and, coincidentally, he's stalling on a bipartisan bill to restrict tech's muscle-flexing. Second, he's a clumsy leader devoid of charisma. He screwed up the Manchin- Sinema relationship, and his strategy to advance legislation is non-existent. Typically, anger on the Right targets Nancy Pelosi. Yet, she is a far better leader for the party and for the nation. Just one example, when Trump screwed up the USMCA treaty and couldn't get Mexico to sign on, it was Pelosi who helped Trump get the win by negotiating with Mexico, winning much more favorable terms, and getting the treaty passed. The Democrats need new leadership in the Senate. We've already had to suffer through Harry Reid, who was a hard-ass who out-McConnelled" Mitch McConnell. My vote for Senate Leader for the Democrats: Chris Murphy from Connecticut.
