    Hello, I'm pretty sure I'm Joe Biden, and they tell me I'm running for President. So I said OK. Barack Obama likes me.
    We were friends. He might even endorse me someday. Vote for me because Donald Trump. Thank you.

    Vice presidents are really nothing more than window dressing doing busy work and standing at the ready just in case the President has to step down.
    They don't get involved in the day to day but are used for diplomatic appearances, photo ops and garden parties.
    Obama begged Joe not to run for office and only chose Joe as VP to be a counter balance to his blackness and appease the white voters.
    Joe is a nice guy that corporate America is not threatened by. He was the comedy relief of the Obama administration. He deserves a comfortable retirement and speaking gigs... Not the Presidency.

      @Sally Williams You have it backwards. Bernie Sanders would get great turnout and wipe the floor with Trump. Biden would get poor turnout and lose.
      Biden is Hillary 2.0, who also lost due to poor voter turnout because she was such a boring candidate.

      Roger didit fact is that liberal states are the wealthiest and most successful in the union. New York, Massachusetts, California, all are doing better than Alabama, Wyoming, Arkansas, etc. NYC, LA, Boston, most major cities are Democratic strongholds, and are wealthy, usually more than the countryside. Liberal policies have a proven track record, the conservative ones don’t. Antifa and homeless don’t speak for the Democrats anymore than the David Duke speaks for the Republicans.
      I believe in the Free Market, so if in immigrant does your job better, you deserve to be replaced. Don’t you believe in economics? And who cares about the unborn?

      @0IIIIII Wealthy? Educated? One minute the leftists are moaning about Capitalism and the "greedy" rich elites, and you're crowing about being wealthy? Now do you live in a bubble of stupidity that you don't know that you have rat infested homeless camps of homeless people defecating and urinating on the sidewalks in San Francisco? That you have Anti-fa, a fascist group of thugs that are busting windows, and setting fires while police are told to stand down in Portland? How about the MANY, MANY near bankrupt blue cities in blue states that are on the verge of collapse? Do you live in a cocoon? Meanwhile, you support the slaughter of the unborn, and the flooding of our country with low wage employees that are putting OUR people out of work, so those "wealthy" can make even more profits! Wake up ya dope.

    • Space Junk
      Space Junk 23 days ago

      you do realizing polling shows Bernie is the one candidate who would decisively beat Trump, right? Biden's edge at winning, is an edge to win the democratic nomination, NOT the general. Bernie is the only candidate polling substantially higher versus Trump, he is the safe bet, Biden is the gamble. you can google it

    Even if he remains the front runner I predict that age related health issues will keep him from going much past the end of the year. He just doesn't have it in him physically (mentally he never did). Some people age faster than others and Joe is aging very fast.

  • cableaddict
    cableaddict 25 days ago

    The democratic base will probably come out in strong numbers, no matter who runs. - But Biden won't excite the INDEPENDENTS, nor get them to the polls. - And that's exactly who will decide election.
    (Along with Vladmir Putin & Moscow Mitch.) If corporate-loving Biden wins the primary, Trump wins & this country is finished.

      it is not just the independents, most democratic-leaning people don't vote, if everyone voted, republicans would hardly ever win. a lot of people just only vote when "energized," because the candidate is, i dont know, wildly popular like Bernie Sanders... but then they don;t show up when it's sleepy Joe, because for all people claim to be logical beings, we base most of our decisions on emotions, and it feels bad to go vote for some sleepy old melanin-deficient cretin, when you could just sleep in
