    The Biden transition team has a big folder labeled, 'Tasty Corporate Effluent.' These advisors were chosen from it.

    The Buttigieg choice was obviously a recommendation by those who float in the effluent.

    I think all the Senate Republicans will vote against confirming Buttigieg just because he is gay.

    In March 2016, Obama nominated Garland to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Mitch McConnell and the Republicans refused to hold confirmation hearings. They said filling the vacancy should be up to whoever wins the 2016 Presidential election. Of course in October 2020, McConnell and the Republicans confirmed Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court rather than leaving the decision to whoever won the 2020 Presidential election. Such hypocrisy!

    Saw this on Twitter. Andrew Johnson and Donald Trump have two things in common. Both were impeached and both refused to attend the inauguration of their successor.

    The theme of Biden's inauguration will be "America united." Yeah, good luck with that, Joe!

    When Donald Trump launched his Presidential bid on June 16, 2015, he promised to "build a great wall." In 2021, he finally got his wall. It surrounds the Capitol and the White House.

    The world will take away a tragic truth from Biden's inauguration
    Stephen Collinson, CNN, Jan 15 2021 12:56 PM ET

    There'll be no arguments about crowd size at Joe Biden's inauguration – because there won't be a crowd. In an extraordinary move that reveals the extreme state in which President Donald Trump leaves the nation, the entire monument-dotted National Mall in Washington will be closed on Wednesday. There are fears that violent pro-Trump mobs that stormed the US Capitol will return – and concern for the safety of Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and other dignitaries at the open-air ceremony.

    Past Presidents took the oath of office before huge, carnival-like crowds that stretched as far as the eye could see down the Mall, in a powerful national unifying moment. But this year, there are more US troops in Washington than in Iraq and Afghanistan. Massive iron and concrete barriers have been erected blocks away from the inaugural platform on the West Front of the Capitol. One official said well-wishers would be lucky to even glimpse the top of the Capitol's white dome if they show up.

    When the world watches on Wednesday, it will take away a tragic truth: Two great icons of US democracy, the Capitol and the White House, must now be sealed inside a vast cage to protect them from the people they serve.

    Much of the damage Trump has done will last for decades – but some of it can be easily fixed. Biden will see to it.

    Reuters offered this succinct analysis of the Trump administration: "Trump sought the world's attention and got it. Now the White House reality show ends."

    Vain, pompous, egotistical, narcissistic, self-centered Donald Trump has no desire to go to a ceremony where someone else – not him – will be the center of attention.

    Trumps' snub of Bidens is historic in its magnitude
    No presidential White House greeting. No traditional ride to the inauguration ceremony. Trump is dissolving one of America's most enduring transfer-of-power rituals.
