Joe Manchin Flirts With Third-Party Presidential Run In New Hampshire

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) took his flirtations with a third-party presidential run on the road on Monday by speaking at a town hall in New Hampshire hosted by No Labels, the political organization advocating for a bipartisan ticket in 2024.Appearing alongside former Utah GOP Gov. Jon Huntsman, Manchin argued the two major political parties are too divisive and that they have failed to deliver for Americans. But the conservative Democrat repeatedly dodged questions about his possible entry into the 2024 race.“Let’s see what happens; it’s too early,” Manchin said. “If I get in the race, it’ll be to win.”“I’m not here running for president tonight. I’m here to, basically, try to save the nation,” the senator added.However, many Democrats fear a third-party presidential ticket would do the o...

In the Senate, time is paramount

In the Senate, one senator can hold up anything.And, in the Senate, a determined supermajority of senators can overcome a blockade erected by that sole senator on a nomination or a piece of legislation.It simply takes time.That aforementioned supermajority can thwart the tactics of the lone senator bottlenecking the parliamentary traffic. Eventually. Senators must file "cloture" and later "invoke" cloture. That’s the Senate term for overcoming a filibuster. And if senators can cobble together a coalition of 60 of their colleagues on legislation or just 51 for a nomination, the singular senator filibustering the issue at hand is blocking things on borrowed Senate time.THE LEFT IS ATTACKING ME BUT THEY ARE THE ONES JEOPARDIZING OUR MILITARYBut what happens when a single senator holds up an ...
