He's young yet, so maybe the GOP will draft him in 2024. (Image via video still)
For the first time in 60 years (and don't get too wet, because they voted solid Nixon vs. JFK back then!), all of the voters in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, the first place in the U.S. to announce a final vote tally each year due to the fact that you can count the number of its citizens on one hand, swept for one candidate: Biden.
Interestingly, one of the voters, a lifelong Republican, offered a passionate video on behalf of conservative values. Not that he is a power broker, but I think his speech is one we'll hear a lot of from Republicans as they begin the shameless process of trying to extricate themselves from Trumpism in order to move forward.
I have little sympathy for so-called conservative values (and him tossing in racial equality because of, um, Lincoln 150+ years ago is rich), but I would for damn sure be okay living in the same world with guys like this, with whom I could disagree, and whose candidates would not be existential threats to the U.S.
