Sorry, I’m a Dog-Faced Pony Soldier, or a Tale of Two Speeches

As mentioned in a previous blog post, I was commissioned with Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois.

As a former resident of Illinois and a historian, I believe she is another Illinois black horse candidate with some mileage, if not as president, then as a vice president.  I have studied her since Trump’s election and believe she is being groomed for the Oval Office or another important position by the Democratic Party.  Despite her status as a junior senator, she is the go to person for denouncing Trump, particularly by doing it on the Senate floor during Trump’s recent trial.  I think she expressed the American public’s opinion succinctly.

While Biden’s chances appear to be over, I think it is fair to say insert Tammy Duckworth as into any campaign.  While her rise has not been as meteoric as Abraham Lincoln or Barak Obama, I predict she may be getting ready for some kind of prominence, with the blessing of many in the Democratic Party leadership.  If Biden’s dismissal of the value of American public opinions is as bad as in this clip, oh well, how the mighty are fallen.

I think the position of Tammy next to Chuck Shumer recently shows succinctly her new prominence.  This coming mother of the nation is a rallying point for a the Democratic Party as well as for bipartisan opposition in the Senate to oppose Donald Trump.

While the Democrats lost the impeachment and trial contests with Trump, perhaps it was an empty victory for the Donald.  A historical example we need to look at is Ronald Reagan’s famous speech in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater.  While Goldwater lost in a landslide to Lyndon Baines Johnson, the speech sowed the seeds for the Reagan Revolution and marked the rise of Ronald Reagan to national prominence.

Anyway, watch Tammy.  I think you will see much more of her Bibi.
