    Yes, I stated there were others reasons as well, and yours are reasonable to surmise. Whatever her reasons, she astutely saw the advantage of immediately offered a quick SOTU to Trump - who promptly accepted.

    Yes, they do a real good job on the show. Loved the episode when he wakes up drunk in Canada.

    Thanks.

    And yeah, I very much agree. My political analysis is not always in concert with my ideologies or desires - I try to divorce myself from my person when doing analysis.

    Thank God. I'm tired of waiting to watch GOP senators look stupid on TV.

    Yesterday, she pronounced she'll send them over when she's "ready". Wonder what suddenly made Nancy ready? Sounds like pressure from those in her own party convinced her that she had better stop stalling, crap on the pot or get off!
    It was predicted a few days ago, and as of this morning it was reported she was still defiant. One supposes that reality finally won over misplaced pride.

    Bloomberg reported that fellow Democrats were unclear why she kept delaying the notification to the Senate, and were "stumped". Off the record exasperations from fellow Democrats may have also played a part.

    Every day the "urgency" argument looked more and more cynical, and the drip-drip of delay was taking a toll on public interest. And when it was announced that McConnel had signed the resolution on rules and to proceed, and to allow a motion of dismissal if the House did not send the articles I suppose that was a face slap to waken Ms. Nancy - she was out of time and leverage.

    There's not doubt that the Democrat spin machine and their media apparatchik arm influences the American zeitgeist. Controlling the media and even language is a great coup.
