This appears to be a week for wildly implausible political punditry. First, Douglas Schoen and Andrew Stein proposed in The Wall Street Journal that Hillary Clinton mount a comeback by challenging Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination in 2024. Then, in The New York Times, Thomas Friedman held out the prospect of Biden dropping Kamala Harris and choosing Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (Wy.) as his running mate when he seeks re-election two years from now.

In the spirit of these farfetched scenarios, I'd like to add one of my own that at least has the virtue of pointing in the direction of something that could conceivably (but won't) happen and might marginally help Democrats to increase their electoral support if it did.
