9. He will need a 3.5 year campaign. I don't think that he is physically up for that.

However, if he surprises me, who do you think would run against him in the primaries with a majority of the Party still supporting Trump? The Republicans have thrown away the Party of the past and has become the Trumpist Party. If Trump can stay physically viable, the nomination will be his to lose again.

The flip side of that is Biden is also old (although apparently in far better shape than Trump) if he is unable or unwilling to run again, who will our party run against a possible Trump campaign. Assuming for a moment that we have to run against Trump, without Biden, who do we have waiting in the wings that could beat the Fascist Past President?

Trump, and Biden, are at that tender age when a person can just up and die on you in a heart beat. (pardon the pun) You have to plan for scenarios that could happen, not what you think will happen.
