From Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to Republican Mitch McConnel, politicians and Americans from all sides can easily cherish the life and legacy of Dianne Feinstein. She was a consensus-builder who on Capitol Hill built personal friendships and brought opposing sides together on policy issues, yet she always remained true to her core values. She has and will always inspire upcoming leaders, particularly women, on how to act, lead, and govern the right way.
Even Republicans can recognize the honorable legacy of Senator Feinstein's career. She had major ideological differences with the GOP but often reached out across the aisle in a spirit of bipartisanship. Unfortunately, jockeying for her successor has been going on for some time within the Democratic Party. As Democratic leadership ages, there seems to be a groundswell to install a new regime of less compromising left-leaning replacements. Now should be a time to remember Feinstein's accomplishments and remember that America cares about getting business done across both parties.
There is a 50% chance that the mean age of the next 5 US Presidents from 2022 to 2040 will be at least 64, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
