    He shouldn't even have a bail to begin with. He *literally* murdered a person. His behavior was no excuse, whatsoever.

    Yeah, I know! It's dumb. I would pledge on a lawbook versus a Bible any day if possible given an option. The government really needs to just focus on law and have no religion in it. No God on bills, no Ten Commandments in a courthouse (If that still exists.), etc. Hopefully, one day we have a more secular government like it is in Western Europe, Japan, etc.

    I wish they'd tell Pence that he is in no way answering the question that was actually asked

    Yeah, it’s been pretty great to watch.

    I almost feel badly for him. Almost.

    Is it possible for a president to step down voluntarily? Without causing a premature election? If so it should happen as soon as possible. Like give Biden a year and then switch to Harris. Make up reasons if you have to, like health concerns or something.

    Yeah, presidents can and have resigned before. Nixon, for example.

    But, why would Biden do that? Unless it was something that he had to do, like for health reasons, I don’t see the point.

    It looked like he had a burst vessel in the corner of his left eye towards the end. It’s actually a symptom of COVID.

    Far better debate than what we had with Trump vs Biden. At least both candidates addressed each other in a respectful manner.

    Pence had well constructed dialogues but failed to address how his administration would deal with climate change, COVID, and healthcare while touting the administration's success on foreign policy, jobs, and the economy.

    Harris championed the environment, combatting climate change, and healthcare but looked like she was about to burst into tears at several points plus avoided questions regarding whether Biden's administration would pad the supreme court and didn't address whether the green new deal will create sustainable jobs that would transfer the American work force from fossil fuels to green energy.

    In all honesty, I just didn't feel like there was a clear winner here.

    It's also the page image (well, for the "live-action film" section) for Narm on TV Tropes: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Narm/Film

    Makes sense, lulz.

    The star of that debate was the fly that was on Pence's head for two solid minutes.

    That aside Harris drubbed him soundly.

    The 25th amendment allows a sitting president to give up their role to the next in line, usually reserved for when their health is in danger or they think they can't do the job right now for some reason. Generally its intended use is temporary but it could be used long term.

    It should be what is going on RIGHT NOW actually since Trump was hospitalized and is on heavy drugs right now that can massively affect your thinking (insert joke about how could you tell) , but he'd obviously never give up power willingly.

    Famously Nixon resigned because he knew the law was catching up to him and it would wreck the country for the office to go through what was coming... because whatever you have to say about Nixon, he had some sense of respect for stuff.


    Also, if you really wanted to do a in intentional hand off, you'd want to wait two years and a day. That way the next in line could still get two full terms. If they get the majority of a first term, then it counts as a full term.
