Should the Democrats dump Biden for Cuomo?

Trump vs. Cuomo? Two obnoxious New Yorkers pitted against each other.

I suspect Paul Gottfried is correct that if Biden wins, he will be quietly shipped off to the nursing home with his vice-present (Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Gretchen Whitmer) acting informally as the real president. A “Biden” administration and would essentially be a repeat of the Obama administration, i.e. a continuation of the Clinton-Bush-Obama neoliberal paradigm with a “left” face. A Cuomo administration would probably be the same.

As I have said before, I suspect the strategically best arrangement from the ATS perspective would be a Republican national administration (particularly one led by a perceived fascist like Trump, for the purpose of alienating the Blue Tribe from the federal government) with Democratic administrations in the states and cities (for the purpose of alienating the Red Tribe from state and municipal governments) and Republican governments in the small towns and counties (in order to exacerbate conflict between local governments and state governments and between rural and urban enclaves).

  1. I think this conversation has become as relevant as whether or not I should log into Netscape or AOL to check my email.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but this whole situation has the feel of already having slid into the next paradigm. Most people are still mentally stuck on the previous outdated screen frantically banging on the keyboard yelling “why won’t you load!!”.
