The unstated premise behind the belief (Biden, at some point, if not now, Manchin) that Republicans would sign on to Biden bills when they wouldn't sign on to Obama bills is that they couldn't be seen supporting the black guy.

Whatever the practical reasons for wanting bipartisanship (50+1 senators makes things hard because some of those senators suck!), it's just inane that "we" don't kill dead the idea that bipartisanship is, in general, "good."

Mitch is the one doing the right thing here. The opposition party should oppose.
