So glad that David Kessler will be a formal part of this administration. A track record of getting things done in government as well as the character to speak truth to power is exactly what this country needs right now leading the vaccine efforts.

He resigned from boards that were in conflict of interest to his previous FDA appointment. That says a lot. He fought against big tobacco. He has fought against AIDS. He has worked in other administrations. He has fought against monetary mismanagement at University of California and was a whistleblower. He was a chairman of Science in the Public Interest. Now there's a novel idea that needs to be restarted. He is a good choice for many more reasons.

@TonyStark It's sure nice to see real public servants coming into these important jobs.

@TonyStark
How refreshing it is to actually see qualified, knowledgeable, intelligent, experienced and caring people appointed to critical leadership positions in this country. What a novel approach to governing! It's been MIA for 4 years.

@TonyStark

Dr David Kessler helped speed the development and approval of the AIDS drug in 1990s and is more than remembered well for it. Excellent choice.

There goes another member of "Rage Against the Voting Machines."

A man who carried a Confederate flag into the Capitol has been arrested.

Michael B. Kelley, Editor at Yahoo Finance: "White House advisor Peter Navarro leaves the West Wing of the White House with a photograph of U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, in Washington, U.S., January 13, 2021."

This is why Acosta said "more stuff."

Finally, the nation will have a government that deals with real problems, not game show crises, inflated egos, and Twitter junk.

Voting for this would be a good way for Republicans to start expressing that "unity" they've been screaming about.

Rep Sherrill is all business in the interviews, I love it. Clearly displeased and very firm about it. No hysterics or hand wringing.
Not someone to be messed with. Yup, lucky she was there to organize for action. 💪💪🇺🇲

This is a most deserving choice.

This is fantastic news for Democrats. Jaime has a unique understanding of the needs and value of grassroots movements, especially in the red states.

A smart, 50-state approach is what we need.

Jaime Harrison is a great pick to lead the DNC! He has plenty of experience as head of the South Carolina Democratic Party. Even though he didn't win the race against Lindsey Graham, he put up an excellent fight, built new relationships at the national level, and showed everyone what a good, fundamentally decent guy he is. Georgia showed what Southern Democrats can do. I love this pick.

Won't it be great to have an administration who wants to help people?

What do you call white supremacists on the FBI Watchlist?

The absurdity of the "this is 1776" comment is that in 1776 we were trying to replace a king with democracy, but these insurgents want to replace democracy with a king.

Support this investigation by telling your own Congressional representative that we demand it. Any involved need held to account and removed from office.

Democrats demand investigation of whether Republicans in Congress aided Capitol rioters-
