    Default Is Neera Tanden a stalking horse?

    Maybe.

    The other Biden appointee proposals represent a great deal of specific competence in their respective assignments, and ought to be a great deal less controversial... but Neera Tanden is a liberal firebrand, and her mention has ignited a great deal of angst among the right wing chattering class.

    Could it be that she's not really the serious candidate... but meant to let the right wing vent a bit before a more moderate candidate is announced?

    We'll see. Given the senate confirms DeVos and others, seems hard to find a valid reason to not confirm any of Bidn's nominees.
    "alternative facts (lies)" are a cancer eating through a democracy, and will kill it. 1st amendment is not absolute.

    .
    I like Neera Tanden. The fact that she twists the wigs of deplorables like Lindsey Graham tickles me.

    Angst? Puhleaze. Nothing but cynical self serving hypocrisy from those cowards cowed by Twitler for 5 years. Oh no! Someone said something mean on Twitter!

    She could be 'a breath of fresh air' after all this lock-step zombie stuff we've seen over the last 4+ years

    Easy - they aren't Trumpers - so therefore no damn good.

    She is a centrist Democrat, not too far off the beaten path, if with an acute on line presence on the twitter, but not, a stalking horse. She is the real deal, too bad John Cornyn and his ilk are such snowflakes.

    If the Dems win the GA Senatorial runoffs, she gets nominated.

    If not, it will be somebody else.

    No horse ever stalked anything.

    Even in American domestic internal politics.

    That's just a rumour spread by mares.

    If she is, it may disappoint many people who voted for Mr. Biden because they thought he would be more honest and trustworthy than Mr. Trump.
