Tammy Duckworth Is Nothing and Everything Like Joe Biden - News Summed Up

Tammy Duckworth Is Nothing and Everything Like Joe Biden


Senator Tammy Duckworth, like the man she might serve as vice president, prizes loyalty in her ranks and occasional mischief in her workplace. So when a top communications aide prepared to defect last year to the presidential campaign of Pete Buttigieg, Ms. Duckworth recognized an opportunity. She recorded a faux media interview trashing Mr. Buttigieg for hiring her staff away, recruiting an intern to pose as a journalist on the tape. Ms. Duckworth handed him a parting gift — a Smirnoff Ice, the centerpiece of a viral drinking game known as “icing” — and gave a final senatorial directive:“Get down on one knee and chug.”A year later, Ms. Duckworth is the one thinking about a new job and submitting to the attendant rituals. There are more accomplished legislators than Ms. Duckworth under consideration.
