Impeachment set to unbalance Sen. Gardner’s attempt to walk down the middle of road
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
Margaret Thatcher once said, “standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.” Sen. Cory Gardner would do well to heed that advice from the conservative English icon.
To date, Gardner has maintained an unsteady heel-to-toe balance along the yellow line. Unfortunately, two very large trucks have appeared on the horizon headed right at him.
As the impeachment process instigated by U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gathers steam and President Donald Trump ramps up his own rhetoric, Gardner will almost certainly be forced into a very uncomfortable choice.
And very little of that decision will have anything to do with the merits of impeachment, but more likely the political optics during a re-election campaign.
