Amy Klobuchar et al. standing in front of a crowd© Preston Ehrler/Zuma Press Move over, AOC, here comes AJK. Amy Jean Klobuchar is going to be on the Democratic ticket in November, either at the top or as the nominee for vice president.

Elizabeth Warren, with her far-left views and fuzzy bio, will continue to sputter, the money well will dry, and she’ll fade to black. That opens a lane for Ms Klobuchar that she didn’t have before, and her opponents can’t find. Even with their modestly differing policy views, I’m suspecting Ms Warren is not going to endorse one of the boys.

But more important, central casting sent AJK at just the right time. She should have played the lead in “Madam Secretary” or “The West Wing.” The stolid, stable, reassuring, sensible woman with values right out of “A Prairie Home Companion,” she appears to look the part for straightening things out.

Warren’s problem, like Clinton ’s before her, is actually one of perceived authenticity. A Wall Street Journal opinion writer offered the view that Klobuchar is a Hillary Clinton without the “ snark ” or the “ baggage ,” suggesting a comparison with Warren as well, and the view that in the next presidential

She showed her stuff during last week’s New Hampshire debate when, among all the cowering panderers, she alone raised her hand when asked: “Is anyone else on the stage concerned about having a democratic socialist on the top of ticket?”

Which one of those other scattering mice did we surmise would poke Vladimir Putin in the eye when he’s naughty? Is there any wonder she shot up to third place in the Granite State?

The secrets of a long-shot diplomat in dealing with Donald Trump

  The secrets of a long-shot diplomat in dealing with Donald Trump Joe Hockey was an undistinguished federal treasurer who turned out to be an exceptionally effective ambassador.   Australia was the only US ally, other than Israel, to not only avoid the thunderbolts and lightning of Trump's wrath but to secure advantage from his administration over the past three years.There are several secrets to Australia's success. One, Hockey says, lies in continuously ramming home two of the essential facts of the Australian alliance. First, Australia has been on America's side in every major war of the last century.

As the primaries proceed, AJK will continue to contrast with this crowd. She’ll have no problem succeeding in her mission to warn the party that a socialist against Donald Trump will be like George McGovern against Richard Nixon. And this Buttigieg kid won’t last very long when the long-distance run shows him to be not Mayor Pete but Meagre Pete—the sort Texans call “all hat and no cattle.” Mr Buttigieg is a classic young cleverling, a glib and facile tongue who seems authoritative on everything because he excelled at Oxford and surpassed when challenged at Speaker’s Corner in London’s Hyde Park. Howard Dean was similarly impressive for a while.

We’ll see how Joe Biden does in South Carolina. If he survives, we can’t count him out given his name recognition, connection to Barack Obama and the voting public’s sense that he’s not too extreme. We have yet to assess Michael Bloomberg’s impact because he hasn’t been put to the test.

And she would neutralize much of Mr Trump’s strength in the heartland. Mrs Clinton lost every Midwestern state except Minnesota and Illinois. Ms Klobuchar, the third-term senator from the North Star State, will be strong in Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Missouri. What has been striking throughout her campaign is that although she perfectly fits the liberal mould of her predecessors Hubert Humphrey and Walter Mondale, she comes across as cautious, nonthreatening and reasonable.

For those of us with long political histories, she fits the mould of another up-and-coming national figure of decades ago. Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine was Humphrey’s running mate in 1968, and despite the tumult of the convention and the campaign, Muskie emerged as the contemplative, thoughtful campaigner who represented the better angels of America. Ms Klobuchar, like Muskie, comes from the kind of Central European stock that helped build America.

Lawyer: Assange was offered US pardon if he cleared Russia

  Lawyer: Assange was offered US pardon if he cleared Russia WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange plans to claim during an extradition hearing that the Trump administration offered him a pardon if he agreed to say Russia was not involved in leaking Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 U.S. election campaign, a lawyer for Assange said Wednesday. The Australian national is being held at a British prison while he fights extradition to the United States to face spying charges. His full court hearing is due to begin next week.

She may not make it to the top of the ticket, but she will continue to shine on the campaign trail, drawing adherents from disaffected supporters of the other candidates. She’ll end up, at the very least, as No. 2 on the ticket. In that case, when Mr Trump is re-elected—likely, given the thinness of the offerings on top—Ms. Klobuchar will be first in line for the 2024 presidential nomination, as Muskie was in 1972.

Like Muskie, Ms Klobuchar has been reported to have an explosive temper, wrought on her staff and those near. It didn’t serve Muskie well, and it won’t serve her well either. Even so, starting today, set your sights on AJK. She’s a wearable cloth for this season.

He says the extradition is politically motivated by those embarrassed by his revelations.
