Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Which of these old white guys can beat Donald Trump?

Joe Biden Age 77 (Joe is the youngest of this group!)

Bernie Sanders Age 78

Michael Bloomberg Age 78

Daffy Duck Age 82 (In all fairness to Daffy, he may not qualify as a white guy.)

I honestly can not believe that, in 2020, given the depth of our bench, the diversity of our party, and the obvious excellence of our candidates, my party seems determined to nominate one of these old, white guys. Admittedly, each and every one of them is far better than Agent Orange.



Blue no matter who.

OLD AND BLUE WILL DO!

3. How about a young woman?

 

I'd vote "none of the above" frankly.

8. Who can win is who you should focus on

 

Biden can win enough states to beat trump in November. We need those Center/Left voters if we want to beat trump. Biden running with a strong progressive Dem woman would be a winning ticket.

13. Yep. Donald is pretty white, I think.

 

If he ran as a Democrat, I suspect he could beat Trump just like the rest of them.

7. None of the Ole White Guys was my first choice.

 

But I do think Joe can win if he is at the top of his game.

9. What's age got to do with it? Well, Trump was the oldest yet to assume office at 70 and

 

look how America has aged in the last three years.

A Democrat -of any age- will help America turn back the clock.

Even Daffy Duck.

A South Carolina voter was quoted on NPR yesterday: "I'd vote...for a...FROG...if a frog was the candidate up against Trump!"

11. They all offer the least contrast to Trump

 

Histories of white entitlement and sexism all lined up together vying for the approval of white racists and pretending their histories don't matter because Black voters are still left with a white male supremacist culture, regardless and it's just a matter of who is most willing to give in a little rather than supporting someone who is willing to draw the line at white male supremacy.
Tom Steyer, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and Julian Castro were ready and Elizabeth Warren is the only remaining candidate who will stop coddling white men. The starkest contrast to Trump has my vote.
