As I mentioned yesterday, the Democrats have chosen a wealthy, white Kennedy to deliver the Democrat response to President Trump’s first State of the Union Address.
And Ben Rhodes approves … enthusiastically.
Joe Kennedy is the future. Glad to see the Democrats embracing that.

So, to recap for those watching at home: The future of the Democrat Party is a white man who is a member of a wealthy political aristocracy.
So much for “The Future is Female.”
Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton hardest hit.
Don’t underestimate just how out of sorts the Democrat Party is that Ben Rhodes would believe the only way to ensure the future is to drag out a name from the past.
Of course the problem for the Democrat Party writ large is they have all but rejected white men.
Instead, the party itself is being controlled by a far-left base steeped in identity politics and socialism.
And trust me. Their kooky base doesn’t look at Joe Kennedy the Third and say, “There’s our future!”
Ben, we like JKIII but please don’t tell us that a white male who is part of a political dynasty is the future of the Democratic Party. Sorry, but he’s not. It’s women of color.

And herein lies the problem for the Democrat Party. There is the Washington Establishment Democrats that wants to run what they consider “a sure thing.” And then there’s the Bernie Sanders/Pink Pussy Hat contingent that won’t be satisfied with anyone white and male — unless he’s an old, decrepit socialist.
But as I said the day after Oprah’s supposed “inspirational speech” at the Golden Globes:
They’re desperate to create the illusion that Donald Trump is so universally hated that they will hop onto any fad that helps advance that illusion.
My guess is, after President Trump’s State of the Union address, whichever Democrat gives the response will also inspire the same kind of gushing hopefulness.
And like clockwork, even before he delivers his speech there are some Democrats crowing over Joe Kennedy III in 2020.
Joe Kennedy III for President in 2020. Love the guy.

Joe Kennedy III & Kamala Harris would be the most incredible ticket & a dream come true for many of us in #TheResistance.

I'm ECSTATIC to see Rep Joe Kennedy III is delivering the dem response to the #SOTU. If you haven't heard of him yet, take a second to look him up and watch some of his speeches. You will not be disappointed. He's our guy for 2020! #TheResistance

So is the Ben Rhodes school of thought going to win out over the “The Future is Female” contingent?
Well, if it does, there will be hell to pay from the “America is just like a Handmaid’s Tale” gals.
Trust me. This will not sit well with the angry, bitter, nasty women who spent the last year thinking they run the show.
On a personal note
My 6-month bloodwork came back and the news is not good. Unfortunately, the drug cocktail I’ve been on for nearly a year is not working. And the next step is probably putting me on chemo medication. I’ll know more next week. But as you can imagine, I’m not especially thrilled about it. If you are the praying type, I covet your prayers as I am in for a bumpy ride.
