If Biden doesn't run for re-election, which Democrat do you think would have the best shot at winning? I'm thinking Beto O'Rourke, although he's been more interested in running for governor in Texas.

Valerie Biden Owens, the now-president's sister, revealed in her forthcoming book that former Republican House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio advised her to tell Biden to stay out of the race.

Early excerpts from the book were published in West Wing Playbook.

In the book, "Growing Up Biden: A Memoir," Owens ó who ran all of her brother's Senate bids and served as a senior advisor to his successful 2020 campaign ó said that the retired GOP lawmaker urged her to persuade Biden to savor his life outside of government service and forgo a rough-and-tumble campaign.

"He's a good man and he has served his country well," the former speaker said of Biden, according to Owens.

Boehner was first elected to the House in 1990 and was its speaker from January 2011 until October 2015; he resigned from the lower chamber at the end of that month.

The ex-speaker reportedly told Owens: "He should just enjoy his life. They will eat him alive. Politics now is a blood sport."

Owens wrote: "Part of me wanted to say to those urging him on, 'Look, he's done enough. Leave him alone.'"

    Right on.

    I heard someone on Fox say the other day...maybe it was Newsmax...that this whole mess is about Jill wanting to be First Lady. I don't know if that's true but it fits.

    I've noted here several times that I think Jill should be arrested.

    Curt,

    To quote the Doddering Old Fool in the White House: I think "you're a lying dog-faced pony soldier."
