My conservative pals like @baseballcrank think I'm giving a pass to Warren and others. I'm not. I'm saying: Because Warren or other likely Dem nominees are (a) not emotionally unstable and (b) not colluding with enemy foreign powers, I will vote for her or any of them. /1
@baseballcrank I have reached the point where my requirement for a president is "not dangerously unstable" and "not in bed with a hostile foreign power." You'd think that would be easy to find, but no, not in the GOP. So Dems, if you pass those two tests, your nominee has my vote. /2
@baseballcrank Yes, I get it, that means I will be voting to get rid of Trump by voting for some nominee who might be trying to institute a national allotment to wear waffles as underwear or something. I get it. They'll have dumb policies. Really dumb.
But not "unstable" and "colluding." /3
@baseballcrank I don't even care that Trump is a bad person. (Well, I don't care enough to make a difference.) Lots of POTUSes have been bad people.
- Not emotionally unhinged
- Not in bed with enemy foreign powers.

That's it. That's my line. Biden? Fine? Warren? Sure. Harris. Okay. /4
@baseballcrank I am not going to pretend that there is *any* policy important enough to me to put up with a man who is dangerously irrational and who has signaled that he will continue to take help from an enemy while attacking our own IC and LE communities. Nope. /5
@baseballcrank I'm sure I'll be squicked out by whoever the Dems pick for jobs like AG. But not as much as I am by Barr, Mnuchin, and the rest of these throne-sniffing courtiers. So, there it is. Warren can threaten to tax used kitty litter for all I care. Not unstable, not colluding. Done. /6x
