The Trump You Know And The Biden You Don’t November 7, 2023November 17, 2023 It is by no means sure Trump will be the nominee. If he is, you might want to read his niece’s Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man . . . although the title pretty much tells it all. You could read his own book, the Art of the Deal, but quicker and more interesting might be Tony Schwartz, who actually wrote that book for Trump, speaking at the Oxford Union 10 days before the 2016 election about why he represented “such a dangerous threat.” Except that most of you already agree, so you could save even that hour. Instead, let’s turn to the question of our nominee. Unless he decides not to run, it will be Joe. Most Democrats and I’d guess a majority of Independents agree on two things: that they wish he were younger (I’m sure he does, too); and that he and the team of 4,000 appointees he has assembled is doing somewhere between a good and a great job, especially given what he’s been up against. But there’s a lot, I think, most of us don’t know about him — I knew about the plagiarism thing, for example, but not the rest of the story — and so I have another book to recommend that I finished listening to last night: Growing Up Biden by the President’s sister. Unlike Trump’s niece (above), or Trump’s sister (who wrote no book but once told a friend of mine, when asked why she lived in their building and not one of Trump’s, “have you met my brother?”), Valerie Biden Owens makes a deeply personal and powerful case for her brother that helped me get to know him a lot better. I think he will be our nominee and win reelection. Whoever our nominee is — or theirs — we have to build the resources to turn out a huge blue wave. To hold the White House, for sure, but also the Senate, and take back the House and make gains in every state legislature. I think you’ll enjoy Growing Up Biden. ParkerVision made its appeal yesterday. You can read about it here and, in more detail, here. Lord knows I’m gun-shy by now; but if you own PRKR (with money, in this case, you basically have already lost) — currently valued at barely $7 million — I would hold on to see what happens. Who knows? The good guys might finally win.
