How to use propitious in a sentence?

  1. Pedro Cabán:

    The atmosphere in Washington is not propitious for that at all, you know, in this country we can't come to an agreement about whether to wear masks or not. Imagine inviting a new state that is going to push the balance of power further into the Democratic side. There's no chance that the Republicans will stand for that.

  2. David Axelrod:

    Anything that changes the subject is good news. It's been a rough stretch for him. It is a chance for him both to fulfill a promise and do something that unifies his caucus and gives him a win, this is a propitious time to be talking about Supreme Court. If the current court does as we expect and guts Roe vs. Wade in the spring, this could be a motivating factor for voters on the Democratic side, particularly women, particularly in the suburbs, which will be important. And having a stellar nominee who impresses joining the bench after June could be part of that mix.
