1: Comment of the week is Peter Gerdes here, arguing that publicly pressuring Sotomayor to resign makes Sotomayor less likely to resign (because she can’t look like she’s giving in to political pressure). I don’t know if I buy it, but worth thinking about.

2: Related: some Democrat friends have asked me to signal-boost this post they wrote about why and how to help get Biden to step down (basically: other candidates do better in adjusted head-to-head polls; calling your representative will help).
