Today’s podcast rolls its eyes at Joe Biden’s sudden conversion to the idea that he, as president, can invoke the 14th amendment to solve the debt-ceiling crisis—something three weeks ago he said he could not do. Is this more grist for the mill of his chances in 2024? Not so fast; there are data that suggest the Republicans have more to worry about than Democrats next year. Give a listen.

    Over the weekend, I took John up on his recommendation of “No,” a film about the referendum on the Pinochet government. He’s right; it was very good, and suspenseful, even though you know how it turns out.  I also finished “Phineas Finn,” and now look forward to the sequel. Recently retired from teaching, I am enjoying catching up on reading. These recommendations are a great addition to the podcast. Thank you.

    Congrats to Matt on making Putin’s list. I’m learning from online Russian tutors that Latvia is now the place to go if you want to spend a few weeks immersing yourself in Russian and taking classes. 

    Christine’s professed lack of foreign policy expertise does nothing to deter me from my original position: What this country needs is common sense. “Rosen ’24!”
