I think it's still one election cycle away from TX being in play, if Biden picks one of the names mentioned and maybe he becomes a voluntary one-term president that the next VP better pick someone like Castro.
Regardless, putting DC and PR with senators and reps is a huge priority as is ending the EC. If the cards align and the Dems get the trifecta, don't reach across the aisle unless it is to punch them.
If the Dems get control of the House, Senate and White House they had better not go Obama route, trying to bridge divides and horsefeathers.
Give me D.C. statehood. Then PR statehood. Build-out the coalition. Then go after the policy. IRL policy discussions always bugs. Brings to mind the old saw about "amateurs think in terms of tactics, professionals think in terms of logistics." Similar principle here: take care of the fundamentals first. Do what you can to build something enduring. I know...."walk and chew gum at the same time." I just don't trust that Dems have the discipline to go for the throat. I so want to be proven wrong.
History is on your side as far as Democrats failing to pounce.
