Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Aug 21, 2019, 10:10 AM

 

Unless ANY of the candidates on the list are electable over Trump, we're hopelessly lost.

To claim that an old white man should be nominated simply because he's the most electable is to say that he resembles Trump enough to lure a sufficient number of Trump supporters. But I find it hard to believe that there will be enough Trump supporters in existence to matter after what Trump has, and continues to, put us through. We shouldn't need to accept such a compromise. If it's not true that ANY of the Democratic candidates on the list are electable then our nation has hopelessly lost its way and we might as well give up.

Speaking as an old white man myself I favor a candidate who is the "Anti-Trump", and by that I mean as opposite to Trump as possible, including not an old white man. We need a young, female, liberal, intelligent, knowledgeable, honest, altruistic, amiable, and rational candidate to face and defeat the old, male, right-wing, idiotic, ignorant, dishonest, insensitive, crude, and irrational incumbent. Electing such a polar opposite is necessary to help us convince the rest of the world that America's inexplicable insanity was only temporary and we have finally come to our senses.

1. They're all electable over Trump.

 

The biggest threat is a third party candidate. Almost any democrat running now would beat him heads-up.

2. I also want the opposite of Trump. I don't judge a person's exterior - I judge a person's character.

 

That being said, I want someone who is compassionate, empathetic, decent, respectful, humble, selfless and authentic.

The candidate that has all of these qualities is Joe Biden, who is in stark contrast to Trump and who will defeat him because of this.

4. I agree with you. "Old white man" and "young woman" represent only how a person is packaged.

 

What I look for is under the exterior wrapping.

5. "The candidate that has all of these qualities is Joe Biden." Are you saying none of the others do?
