A More Diverse And Inclusive Gov’t Could Be Biden’s Most Significant Policy Legacy. But It Must Extend Beyond Admin Leadership.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. After what seemed like a never ending campaign, Joe Biden has won the presidency. He did so with a campaign team that was one of the most diverse in history, including a staff that was more than one-third people of color and more than half women. His transition team is shaping up similarly. But winning and setting a vision is only the beginning of the work of governing. Translating promises into policy enactment...

Refusing to concede is just a formality, but recent history shows how impeding a transition team could cost lives and delay preparations for America's biggest security risks

Members of the 9/11 Commission pointed out that the nation hadn't done enough to prepare for a terrorist attack. Alex Wong/Getty Images President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election. A shortened window for a proper transition has happened before. The most notable recent example was in 2000, when the incoming George W. Bush administration was left with far less time to prepare after a lengthy legal battle over the voting results in Florida. The 9/11 Commission Report detail...

Rushed 2000 Transition Hampered Gov. Before 9/11, Former Officials Warn As Trump Delays

The Award For Most Bad Faith Refusal To Acknowledge Biden’s Win Goes To… Ron Johnson

For someone who’s talked a lot about the peaceful transition of power between presidents, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has done less than nothing to assist in the peaceful transition between the Trump and Biden administrations.  Asked Tuesday whether President-elect Joe Biden should be congratulated for his victory, Johnson said “no.”  “There’s nothing to congratulate him about,” the Wisconsin senator said.  Johnson has pushed Republicans’ bogus claims of widespread voter fraud for ...

What Breaks and Remakes Us

My family moved to Japan the summer I turned six. It’s in Tokyo where I learned how to walk busy city streets, ride a bike, squish into a packed subway, and read line maps to travel to see friends all by myself. In the beginning, Japan’s unfamiliarity elicited fear in me, but with struggle and time, I would come to fall in love with the way she smelled and tasted — from the scent of dashi sneaking from homes and restaurants, the way cold zaru soba noodles slid down my throat on humid summer days...

Travelling Well

In the Spirit of Going/Knowing, I stitched on this yesterday, all day. While patiently waiting for someone else, anyone, to tell me what I already knew.  And this morning, by lamplight, reflecting on how often that actually happens. The sense of things before the words come. I am going to relax into wordlessness for a bit.  To renew my sense of things.

I have so many new eyes. I just feel like closing them all. If only for a moment's rest.

change is in the air

T hat wind , that signals change, blew in this morning. It may not linger day to day, but it has arrived. I could see it in the treetops before it came through the open window. The wind that makes everything smell different.  It is going to be a big acorn year. The squirrels are beside themselves. ( I was going to say in heaven, but we all know where that concept has gotten us to) It's the most joy I have seen in a long time. The acorns are different here. And quite honestly, so am I. I do...

GOP-Led Senate Committee Scolds WH, Trump Allies For Sketchy, Obstruction-y Tactics
