1. Chances are that Biden would have beat Trump in 2016. ...

He should also be able to beat him in 2020.

5. He has to much ego to bow out, plus he needs to protect his billions

from being taxed. That's the only reason I can see for him running.

In all polls I've seen, Biden is more favorable than say, Kamala and Beto among voters who do know them.

4. Biden has snark

He can throw Trump's crap back at him without reservation. Biden could give Trump a negative identity frame right out of the box. Biden's record of public office at the highest stations in government is exemplary .

34. This is one of the reasons that I am favoring Biden.

 

He is the candidate that I can most see putting Trump in his place and making him look weak and foolish during the campaign without it blowing back on him.

I'm right there with you. Btw, I'm not sure at this point if I do or don't want Biden to run. I love him so much. It's just too early and there are so many great Democrats to be considered.

14. LOL, yeah, right. At this point there's only one person I really can't imagine supporting

and that's Tulsi Gabbard. She only stopped expressing anti-LGBT views for her 2014 campaign, and in a 2015 interview she said that her personal views hadn't changed -- just her political positions.

And she visited Assad on her own and came back saying she didn't believe he'd used chemical weapons on his own people (as the UN and all our intelligence agencies say.)

And she visited Trump in the Tower a few days after his election. And Bannon has spoken highly of her, and a bunch of other right-wingers.

But other than Tulsi, I think we have a number of strong candidates to choose from. It will be interesting.

18. And look how well Obama did, at a much younger age

and with a much shorter resume.

It turns out Obama's intellect and other qualities outweighed his relative lack of experience.

24. in point of fact his lack of experience did show on many issues

He was utterly unprepared for the GOP obstruction that happened. He got too few judges through, he wasted months trying to work with them on health care, gave them too much on his stimulus bill and then got virtually none of their votes. He did a good job, but his lack of experience was harmful on more than one level.

37. Obama was being advised by his wonderful, highly experienced VP, on how to proceed.

Too bad he didn't get better advice.

The truth is that no one would have been prepared for what the GOP did, because they'd never done that before. They met in secret the month of the inauguration and made a plan to obstruct every piece of legislation Obama put forward.

Last edited Sun Feb 17, 2019, 03:32 PM - Edit history (2)

and Biden also plays the nice guy in public. That was his whole problem with Anita Hill. He wanted to be seen as non-partisan.

Biden was also more moderate than Obama on issues, so he was closer to the GOP in the first place. For example, his plan for health care stopped short of providing universal insurance.

He also supported Republican bills to make student debt not able to be wiped out in bankruptcy.

20. Remember "Joementum"? At the start of the 2004 campaign season Lieberman led the

pack because of name recognition. I think Harris will soon make up the difference. My favorite candidate is Warren, but I think she might not appeal to enough voters beyond the liberal base.

33. I'm thinking Sen. Warren could easily be the leading candidate & I believe in the theory

that after the country is exposed to an extreme right candidate it will swing extreme left when it comes to the next presidential choice. In that I'm saying all the normal restrictions are off, that a progressive women in the White House sounds pretty damn good after 4 years of fascist old angry white dudes. Not saying she is extreme left but she may be the most progressive candidate of the mix.

That's important. Biden brings the gravitas on the world stage that none of the other candidates have.
