15. :) Imo, Biden. People need to compare all their RECORDS

 

to see why. It's not that Biden is like an imaginary Inslee who'd been serving in the house and senate since 1972 and as committed over that period as he is now.

But I don't see any upper-tier candidates whose actions can compare with Bidens, and I doubt that most would have his record if they were around as long. Biden's record is better than most older Democrats, much more than some. Above all, he's is proven to have had the right attitude about these issues over decades when relatively few were noticing.

Sanders has been around a while, but his record of achievement or even just involvement is as paltry on climate action as on other issues. Sure, he's made statements and taken positions; but he's always been I-Sanders, and that means his contribution has been his routine +1 vote on bills after they were crafted and brought to the floor by Democratic senators, including Biden.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
