    Maybe the republicans could subpoena him, like they did Clinton, and end up getting him to lie about an irrelevant to the investigation blowjob when it turns out to be a nothing burger.

    This is good. Ok I'm a terrible person for saying anyone's death is good, but that's the only way she would stop being a Senator, the damn woman would not retire. Not my fault we couldn't get rid of her, I voted for Kevin DeLeon and don't even regret it.

    She changed my life.

    I remember seeing her standing on the steps of SF city hall when she was mayor, proudly announcing the (illegal) handgun ban she had just signed. And surrendering her own handgun. Well, at that time, she had one of the *8* pistol carry permits that had been issued in SF(*), and her own handgun was actually still sitting in her purse. The gun she surrendered was from the police evidence room.

    I knew well several of the other 7, one of whom was on the Board of Supervisors with her at the time.

    This led me to my hobby of litigating against illegal firearm regulations passed by cities and counties in California, which at the time had total state preemption of firearm regulation.

    (*) This is in an era where I had to take my own town's police chief to court, because he wouldn't even hand you the from to *apply* for a permit, though according to records there was zero chance you would be approved, unless you were a close personal friend of his. One of the other jurisdictions nearby you'd have a better chance, the records in the court cases showed the process consisted of handing the issuing authority $5000 in cash when nobody was looking.

    The whole thing shaped my view of how the government actually worked.

    Now that she's dealing with this current health issue, will she no longer be voting?

    Haha look for her to not vote for quite a while. She’ll be damned if she steps down, though.

    Based upon Harris's even lower approval ratings and virtually non-existent Democratic donor support, I suspect she will step away from politics as soon as Biden bows out of the race.

    I would then expect Newsom's campaign to raise his profile nationally to take off while a few other ambitious Democrats throw their hats into the ring as well.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if whoever runs the DNC solves the problems I mentioned above by convincing Harris to resign from the Vice Presidency so that Gavin Newsom could appoint her to fill Feinstein's seat? He's said that he will only appoint a woman of color so she's qualified, plus she could probably turn that into a long career which her current path probably can't guarantee.

    Then, those nameless folks who run the party could tell Biden he must drop out of the upcoming race so that Newsom can take his place, thereby solving several problems at once. I don't think it's much of a stretch to believe some of those folks think Feinstein's death couldn't have come at a better time.

    this is the scenario we deserve, but will not get.

    Interesting speculation. i could see where odds of Biden's re election could improve with a stronger or more popular VP rather than Harris. Whoever he might pick could have a decent shot at inheriting the presidency if Biden were elected. Newsom has the same used car salesman persona as Kevin McCarthy as I see it.

    Newsom has zero appeal to me.
