It’s an honor to join @DorisKGoodwin @jmeacham to commemorate January 6th. We should commit to the spirit of unity and patriotism and learn from history. America is resilient. History shows after turmoil comes hope. #January6th

Something surreal about watching Pelosi and other Democrats happily greeting Dick Cheney, once their bete noire. Says something about how Trump has changed the nature of our politics.

Use this anniversary of January 6 to remember that democracy is not a right, but a privilege whose flame we all have to defend every single hour.

I caught this moment of VP Dick Cheney and daughter Rep. Liz Cheney on the way to the House floor to observe a moment of silence for all the victims of the Jan. 6th insurrection. They were the only two Republicans present. @CCP_UArizona @jmeacham @BeschlossDC

Tennessee's GOP supermajority is trying to gerrymander our state & hoping you won’t notice. 40% of Tennesseans are Democrats, but under draft maps, fewer than 11% of our federal elected officials would likely be. That's not democracy, it’s a power grab. tennessean.com/story/opinion…

Upon reflection, I’m pretty sure the last time we had a fully functioning government (meaning, you sometimes have to do things for the greater good that aren’t in your personal political best interests) was 1990 when Bush 41 signed the tax increases into law.

The new @VanderbiltU Poll dives into Tennesseans’ sentiments on COVID, the state legislature, the 2024 presidential race, and more. Most agree that national unity is lacking, but there is a strong majority looking for compromise. Check out the data here:news.vanderbilt.edu/2021/12/…
Results from a new Vanderbilt poll show that Tennesseans are less confident in elected officials compared to May and that Democrats and Republicans share common ground on issues including education and redistricting. Learn more at vu.edu/gjedw.
