New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman just took TV and tried to make it a reality.
Friedman suggested some rather radical presidential ticket proposals so Democrats can hold power in 2024.
The ink had not even dried on the paper when liberals just about lost their minds.
Friedman was looking to Israeli politics as a guideline for how the United States should consider moving forward.
He called Israel’s current government the “most diverse national unity government in Israel’s history,” something he suggested “might be a harbinger for politics in the U.S.”
Then he dropped the bombshell.
Friedman wrote, “Is that what America needs in 2024 — a ticket of Joe Biden and Liz Cheney?
“Or Joe Biden and Lisa Murkowski, or Kamala Harris and Mitt Romney, or Stacey Abrams and Liz Cheney, or Amy Klobuchar and Liz Cheney?
“Or any other such combination.
“Before you leap into the comments section, hear me out.”
Rolling Stone editor-in-chief Noah Stachtman issued a reply that was quite typical of what we saw, stating, “The most storied institution in American journalism has given this man a high-paying job for life. And he farts this out.”
I hate to break it to him, but this will never work.
In fact, I would love to see Democrats try it, as it would lead to an even bigger loss than we already expect, not to mention ending the careers of any Republican that agreed to do this.
This is literally right out of “Madame Secretary.”
The big problem… the Republicans he is suggesting are despised by most of the Republican base.
It will not lure more voters in but instead chase more to the Republican ticket.
If Democrats want to make headway, take a moderate from their party and add it to the ticket, as that would work much better in landing moderate voters than in taking a Republican outsider or putting two far-leftists on the ticket.
What do you think of a bipartisan ticket? Do you think that would ever win an election in this country?
