Good thing I own a home within his district. I'll have to make it my primary residence so I can vote for him in 2020.

Stansky is a snowflake who never worked a day in his life. He needs to be a real businessman like me. I built a business with my own two hands and now I'm living in the lap of luxury.

First, great formatting job Pro, love the aesthetic of the post.

Second, Bell's health and age was something I'm surprised was not criticized more but this will be interesting to see how it plays out. If he recovers, he will face greater scrutiny about this issue. If he does not, well, a replacement will be a critical question. To me, no one comes to mind as of now.

Who?

I think Rodham and Sanabel’s Mass. Gov would make suitable choices but each would face their own challenges.

Walsh would be an interesting choice
Klobuchar/Buttigieg 2020

18-year-old American with too much time on his hands and not enough motivation to waste it properly. Republican, if that even means anything anymore. Token Racial Minority. Token Gay Guy. Texan. 80's Pop Czar. Candy Corn/Disco Apologist and Aspiring Diplomat. Booker Antagonist, Goldwater Shill. Role Models include many dead people nobody cares about but who kinda did some cool stuff I guess.

Of course, but he would likely be able to give the image of a suitable successor.

Less traditional choices could be Sinclair or Locklear, though I think neither would accept and they would be very unlikely.

Honestly my biggest problem with Bell was that I was concerned about the Hand-Shaker-In-Chief only having one hand

If/when Bell passes or resigns, Thomas Stevenson is going to begin angling for the position.

A similar adequate choice, would bring a unique background to the table. Young too.

CIA background, working for Cheney, and sitting on the Intelligence committee, plus being relatively young, would make him a very solid pick. Bachelor too, so no family concerns.

I remain unsure if Mondale will pursue the post, she certainly has the ambition and could make the case for herself but may rather not follow up an icon like Bell.

Nonetheless, if she continues down the path of U.N. Ambassador, she certainly will try to influence the decision.

You know I am a huge Nikki Haley fan but when she was appointed to the UN i was concerned that other nations might not respond well to having a woman in the position.
