“A pack, not a herd.”
The thing about a pack is that at some point, somebody needs to emerge to challenge the alpha leaders and, if they’re able, overthrow them.
The “progressive” alpha pack leaders (both D’s and R’s) who’ve led the pack into disaster and despair are looking pretty long in the tooth, aren’t they?
Not that they won’t go down without a fight, of course.
Pelosi, the alpha female pack leader way past the point of prime comes to mind.
