I'm glad to see the Dems coalescing around Biden. It is a very good thing that the Democratic Party appears not to be on the verge of nominating an American-style Maduro; a man with similarities in some ways with Trump himself.
Biden represents the safe choice, the choice that can most focus the voters on the single issue of replacing Trump the rather annoying, tweeting man. To the extent he also represents a direction of change away from economic growth and jobs, prioritizing American workers over the extralegal kind, and getting the heck out of the Middle East, then he is vulnerable to having core Dem constituencies poached by the Republicans this time around,
Everything depends, IOW, with whether the Dems can make this election into a referendum on Trump. And they probably can, because Trump basically wants the same thing. He's a fool for doing so; Trump is most appealing when he sounds like he did at the SOTU and emphasizes improved conditions for Middle Americans.
Folks just want the dumpster fire to be over. So do I. I don't know yet how I will vote. I've never been much of a Biden guy, I never felt he was much more than a mediocre career public servant, Delaware's version of Bob Casey. And now he's just too old, don't your think?
I think a lot depends on who he picks as his Veep. I don't think he'll serve out his term, so this is more than the usual complement-the-guy-at-the-top-type decision. I think he'd be smart to pick Amy Klobuchar, a fool to pick Stacy Abrams, a genius to pick John Kasich. (Just joshin' about that last one)
