Alternatively, some might look at her role as AG in CA and view it as authoritarian and heavy-handed. There's a reason that she dropped out of the Democratic Nomination race: people don't like her policies or her personality.

Dan Waylonis,

If the people didn't like her, she would not have been elected.

Just accept the fact that she is now YOUR Vice President until 2024.

I hope she will do as much for the U.S. as she did as a prosecutor and a senator.

"There's a reason that she dropped out of the Democratic Nomination race: people don't like her policies or her personality."

Therefore we say the same about Carley Fiorina in 2016?

And about Ronald Reagan in 1976?

No election results are final, Trump will string out and challenge each close state loss and if, for any reason, the ELECTORAL COLLEGE fails to convene or get 270 votes for Biden (and Harris) on December 14, they will not be President and Vice President of anything. The Trump nightmare is far from over.

I still prefer Mistress Vice President Kamela Harris.

Just my sense of humor and the idea that Mitch McConnel would have to address her as MISTRESS.

So far no valid allegations of voter fraud.

Granted Georgia is doing a recount, but Penn is beyond recount at this time. And Arizona is still pointing to Biden.

The Electoral College votes are overwhelming.

The is a replay of Florida except the Democrats have the numbers behind them, with more than 5 Million more votes in the popular vote.

However, Donald Trump is a "business" man and if he loses his "business" he will burn it up before letting his winning opponent take over.

Steven, As you know, the popular vote lead is all from California and counts for nothing but "pr." The Constitution has several ways by which a President can be selected. Time could run out on the Electoral College if the Supreme Court steps in - even for a day. Trump does not need a winning case - just a delay. I hope I am proven wrong.

Gary,

I HOPE SO TOO.

Mike Moore said in the movie 11/9 that Trump would be the last President of the U.S.

It would be scary if he was right?

Are we seeing the birth of a new Adolf Hitler?
