34. Not really a "scandal" but still extremely interesting, and yes newsworthy

I find this statement so interesting.
Is he saying that if Trump is unable to run (he won't back out willingly) that he would let someone else run?
I have had a gut feeling, all along, that neither Biden or Trump would be the nominees when push comes to shove.
I know that as of right now the GOP said that even if convicted, Trump would still be nominated by the party. I find that IMPOSSIBLE to believe.
I think the 4 remaining "contestants" don't believe it either.
Do we have confidence that Biden could beat a Nikki Haley? I'm not so sure, I have many moderate women friends that are seriously looking at her.
I do think if her abortion stance becomes center stage, and she is made to answer honestly where she stands, that may change. But as of right now they really like her.

I don't like the sound of that, sounds like Malarkey. elleng Dec 5 #1

Well, he's 81 - I don't have any doubts that he can do the job, but he just might like to enjoy some retirement years at Midwestern Democrat Dec 5 #23
