The Democrat party elders asked the oracle, how do you get rid of an unwanted vice-president? Three ways, the oracle replied. Impeach and convict her, ask her to resign for the good of the party and nation, or...bribe her by offering appointment to the Supreme Court.

Conviction would require at least seventeen consenting Republican Senators. The elders know that's unlikely, as why would the GOP help the Dems out of their sinking ship dilemma? A principled resignation by this super self-serving woman? The elders half kill themselves laughing. The Supreme Court option, hmmm.

Kamala Harris (edited in befunky). YouTube Screen grab.

Okay, let's dangle a lifetime sinecure on the hallowed Supreme Court in front of Kamala. That might do the trick. (This is not the first time Kamala has been considered for the Court – check out the back in the day photo.)

Would the VP agree to quit her office? Right now, no matter how much Kamala is vilified and disrespected, she still becomes POTUS if anything happens to Joe. Over three years remain in his term and the oracle says it's fifty-fifty whether double stroke Joe goes the distance. Would Kamala take the sure thing sinecure or gamble on gaining the most powerful office in the land?

The oracle predicts Kamala will accept nomination to the Supreme Court. What then, are the prospects for confirmation? Even the Dems might recoil at the prospect of such a congenital bumbler sitting on the Court.

The elders know Kamala needs to go. If a court seat is the price, so be it. Besides, she has always reliably voted leftwing. Her replacing Breyer won't change the outcome of cases. Plus, she will mostly be out of sight, out of mind.

If the Democrats stick together, including wayward Manchin and Sinema, then the Senate Republicans can't stop confirmation. Senate rules do not permit the filibuster concerning judicial or executive branch nominations.

A current member of the Court must retire to make way for Kamala. Justice Stephen Breyer (83 years old) is the most obvious candidate.

Would Breyer step aside? He is certainly aware of Kamala's disastrous poll numbers and complete unsuitability for the presidency. Unlike Kamala, he probably would resign for the good of the party and nation. A reward of a cushy ambassadorship (Bermuda?) could help along his decision.

So. Justice Breyer resigns. Joe nominates Kamala to replace Breyer. After cursory hearings, the Senate holds a confirmation vote. Kamala is still VP, which is necessary to break a likely 50-50 tie. Kamala is confirmed.
