All very sound reasoning. And let's be real, you'd have to go pretty far back to find a time when the Dems actually ended up nominating a "lefty" candidate; for decades their chosen candidate has always been pretty centrist.

I'm not for Biden for several reasons. One is that I think he's unelectable. He's four years older than Trump and seven years older than me. (He would have four living ex-presidents, three of who completed two full terms, younger than he is.) I actually think that he's a young 76 but why give the other side something to attack him on? After all one of 'our' arguments against Trump, that must have been worth at least a few votes, was that the guy is just too old and losing it (if he ever had It in the first place). The other side will drag up the recycling of Neil Kinnock's speeches from 1988. And if there is one lesson from the Trump election and the way in which B Sanders came from nowhere to almost pip Clinton for the nomination, it's that many voters want something more than 'different face, same story' of the machine politicians. You could say that Obama was another manifestation of that desperation for change.

Were I a voter I'd vote for Biden. But I'm not convinced that he has enough of the newness factor about him to actually win.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

it is a little early for me to be picking horses. I'm just glad to see a strong field with a lot of intelligent and articulate candidates. My only real negative is Sanders who ought to be ashamed to try to manipulate a party he does not support just to burnish his ego.

It's his supporters that I have more of a problem with. The comments on social media where they incessantly tear down every other candidate show that they are prepared to repeat their folly of 2016, where they see their preferred candidate as the only choice and are prepared to withhold their vote (or, indeed, vote for Trump) if anyone else gets the nomination. It's like a cult. I don't see supporters of any other candidate doing that.

He had an opportunity to be gracious and chose to be an ass instead. i merely pointed out his dickishness.

Oh yeah, that's definitely me, sucking up to others here. I am famous for it.

How soon you forget how many times I have called others to task when I believed they were in the wrong when interacting with you. I call 'em as I see 'em, as I did in this case, and will continue to do so regardless of your transparent attempt to trigger the same perpetual animosity that you have caused others to harbour toward you.

2020 Presidential Candidates: Joe Biden

Postby RayThom » Fri Jun 07, 2019 4:56 pm

I still feel strongly that the Dem ticket will come down to Biden/Warren -- and if they win -- Biden will "abdicate" in 2024 leaving Warren with a shot at being our first woman president.

Buttigieg is my favorite candidate, but with Biden now in the running, I feel I must go with the one who will run strongest against Lord Dampnut, and be the most electable. (ie. most centrist)

Buttigieg will make an excellent cabinet member which will season him well as a presidential candidate after Warren.
