NEW: My deep dive into the 36-year McConnell-Biden relationship

How Biden's deal w/ McConnell on "fiscal cliff" made Reid so mad he demanded Obama bench Biden next time

a fresh look at the Bork hearings

Obama + aides skepticism that Joe can make it work

This is a great piece, illuminating and well written

Always loved this story: Letterman, Hank Aaron and an impeached President.

Hank Aaron broke the home run record four months before Nixon resigned. This is so great

Replying to @EliStokols: Muhammad Ali once called Hank Aaron "The only man I idolize more than myself."

@ShaneGoldmacher When I interviewed Brown for my Pelosi biography, I asked him what he thinks drives her. His answer began, "Well, our outward lives are a manifestation of our inward being..."

Jerry Brown becoming a sort of gnostic political sage in retirement is both predictable and delightful (via @ShaneGoldmacher)

We don’t have final 2020 Census data yet — and we won’t have all of it for a long time — but the trend lines are pretty clear. Here’s what the numbers are likely to tell us, based on my conversations with a bunch of smart demographers:

Quoted @Alex_Roarty

Bob Menendez, on a call w/a pro-immigration business group, acknowledges what he calls the "herculean" task of passing the Biden bill through the Senate.

Notes they'll need nine GOP senators. Say they got that many in '13, but: "Of course, time and circumstances have changed."

This is gonna drive me nutso in the next few months. Democrats need TEN Republican votes. Not nine. Harris only breaks ties. She isn’t an automatic extra D vote.

"Split-ticket voting made a small but significant difference across the country in the 2020 cycle. Across the most closely contested Senate states, Republican candidates overperformed Donald Trump by a 1.4 point margin."

New - Some Republicans warning McConnell not to vote for Trump’s conviction. “If he does, I don't know if he can stay as leader," one senior GOP senator told me. “No,” Ron Johnson said when asked if he could support him as leader if he backs conviction.
