Today was Kyrsten Sinema's Profiles in Courage moment. She broke with her party to cast a vote that may doom her political career. The question is whether she'll end up recorded in history like John Quincy Adams or Edmund Ross nymag.com/intelligencer/2022…

🎧 @RichardHaass joined me to assess @JoeBiden’s foreign policy one year in. Most striking is “how inward looking" the admin is, suggesting "Trump might constitute less of an aberration"—and Biden "less of a restoration"—of traditional US foreign policy. cfr.org/podcasts/president-b…

He only ways in on the state and local issues that he wants to weigh in on...
PERINO: "Taking a gun into a store, robbing it, but then leaving it and nobody gets killed and that's a misdemeanor. Is the president okay with that? PSAKI: "The president's not going to weigh into the actions of prosecutors or of the legal justice department." (FOX, this am)

I’m glad she’s okay, but at some point we need to talk about reporters doing solo live shots. The practice of being on live tv, at night, with a bright light in your face and nothing to watch your back is profoundly reckless. Let alone in suboptimal conditions.

more WH clean-up:
Lets be clear: @potus was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election. He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record number of voters turned out in the face of a pandemic, and election officials made sure they could vote and have those votes counted.

In the run up to the midterms the Democrats' new position seems to be that there will not be free and fair elections unless their latest voting rights bills are passed. For a party that rightly denounced Trump for undermining trust in our democracy, this is a deeply cynical move.
