For the establishment. The big money will flow that direction and to knock Bernie back in the primary. Then they’ll train their sights on Warren.

It was a somewhat legit question. Best option to win the WH? Best option to lead the party? Best option for America?

Agreed. Biden's been this way his whole career. In that way he's always been genuine, and I kind of like that. Not sure if I like that in a President, but at least he's not pretending or putting on airs.

Gaffs are one thing but he seems noticeably slower than he used to be.

Still not the same unfit as Trump.

Not all his gaffs are gaffs, they are lies, or at the very least, fibs.

Of course they all do, some just do it more than others, like Trump, and Biden.

Yeah. Because he's old. IMO, we should cap the age you can be in public service at 70. Or at least 75. Especially when we're talking about positions of leadership. Nothing wrong about just retiring.

Kirsten Gillibrand Drops Out of Democratic Presidential Race
Source: New York Times

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who presented herself in the presidential race as a champion of women and families, said Wednesday that she was withdrawing from the Democratic primary after failing to qualify for a third debate next month — a development she described as fatal to her candidacy.

Ms. Gillibrand said in an interview that she would endorse another candidate in the primary but had not yet picked a favorite. Though she stopped short of saying she would endorse a woman, Ms. Gillibrand, who has made electing women to Congress a personal cause, said the next president had to be capable of uniting the country and suggested that a woman might be best suited for the job.

“I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country,” Ms. Gillibrand said, adding, “I think a woman nominee would be inspiring and exciting.”

But she added: “I will support whoever the nominee is, and I will do whatever it takes to beat Trump.”

The only candidate who managed to piss off every arm of the Democratic party except for nutters who think getting a president with a vagina is our most pressing issue.
We get the government we deserve. :nod:

Sure they all lie, but Obama was deceitful when he did. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”

Trump and Biden tend to embellish things,

If Biden holds on and picks a woman of color (Harris or Tulsi) as Veep, he’ll stomp Trump. Even a Biden-Warren ticket (the White Menopause ticket) would stomp Trump.

Trump does not just embellish things. He out and out lies. Constantly.

He's constantly lying to his cult about building the wall. He lied about the impacts of the tax cut. He lies about the economy. He lies about who is paying the tariffs. He lies about the media. Just on and on. He lies WAY more than Obama ever did. He even lies more than Bill Clinton did.

He literally is a "lies every time he opens his mouth" type of person.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?
