If Joe Biden Wins The Nomination But Suffers Cognitive Decline, The DNC Could Get Their Coronation Afterall

Consider how the Democrats fill vacancies on their tickets:

“Filling a Vacancy on the National Ticket: In the event of death, resignation or disability of a nominee of the Party for President or Vice President after the adjournment of the National Convention, the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee shall confer with the Democratic leadership of the United States Congress and the Democratic Governors Association and shall report to the Democratic National Committee, which is authorized to fill the vacancy or vacancies.”

So, to be clear, the vacancy would be decided by Tom Perez (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Steny Hoyer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Jim Clyburn (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Chuck Schumer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Dick Durbin (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), and the DGA will decide on their own who will be our Democratic nominee.

US senators urge Evo not to be re-elected

“Bolivia is heading in a very dangerous direction, aligning itself with illegitimate and illegal regimes, including that of (Nicolás) Maduro in Venezuela. It is important that all parties respect the Constitution of Bolivia, which includes limits on mandates,” said Republican Senator Ted Cruz. The resolution, led by Democratic lawmaker Bob Menéndez, calls on Latin American democracies, including Bolivia, to respect “the peaceful regular transfers of power through elections.”

US-Senatoren gegen Wiederwahl von Evo Morales in Bolivien

Am 1. Februar präsentierten Bob Menéndez und Dick Durbin von den Demokraten und Ted Cruz von den Republikanern auf der ersten Sitzung des US-Senats im neuen Jahr einen Resolutionsentwurf, in dem die bolivianische Regierung aufgerufen wird, „die demokratischen Prinzipien zu respektieren“. Nun befasst sich der außenpolitische Ausschuss des Senats mit dem Entwurf, um in den kommenden Tagen eine Entscheidung zur Abstimmung zu treffen. Hochrangige bolivianische Politiker zeigten sich empört und bezeichneten den Vorstoß der Senatoren als Einmischung in die inneren Angelegenheiten Boliviens.
