“I think he should leave. He said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the at the inauguration. He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president," Murkowski said.

"He doesn’t want to stay there. He only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to stay there for his ego. He needs to get out. He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing,” she added.

Why didn’t she have the guts to do this earlier?

Take it. We need every ounce of effort to crush this, even in the 11th hour.

Fingers crossed…

Exactly. And this could be said of most of colleagues, with the possible exceptions of Romney and Sasse.

Please then, vote to convict when the charges come before the Senate.

Has anyone checked on Susan Collins?

She may have passed out from excessive concern.

She is still waiting to see if Trumpo has learned his lesson.

Nate Silver tweeted that Alaska has changed its primary system so that Murkowski can probably be on the ballot without needing GOP support. Remember that she was primaried before Trump, and won a write in campaign with Dem support. She is no Bernie, but if Schumer can offer the right incentives (e.g., committee assignments), we might not need Kamala as a tie breaker.

Good to hear a voice of reason from that side.

I think having Kamala BE the tie breaker is great exposure and makes her a much more active, participatory Veep than her predecessor... so ideally keep the numbers 50-50 as much as possible to wield the cudgel of the Vice Presidency.

Lisa Murkowski has been quietly pushing back for a while now, and has come a long way over the course of her career. If I saw her face to face, I’d shake her hand.

Without her, the ACA would be history.
