Why are we discussing presidential candidates two year out? This whole process is insane. For instance, our neighbor Canada holds elections within a max of a couple of months with no private money contributions. A current U.S. Presidential election costs billions and lasts for years. Could we not find another use of our time and money? Politics has become entertainment not governance.

Hi John,

You make good points! Well, I guess I'm discussing it because Biden will likely be announcing his decision soon. But yea, Canada does this better, and politics has become entertainment, gotta agree.

Interesting, but did you know that weapons and wars cost even more money? I do agree in some points with you. And I certainly think Biden is / was a great President, he needs to be "replaced" by a new Democratic President at the next elections because of his old age. Replaced does not mean thrown away. It just means to me, that he is getting old and needs his rest, he has done enough good work and has the right to live his life with his family and friends in peace. I think he´s great but as I said, we don´t get younger.

Yes, replaced, but not discarded. As VP he could still share his wisdom, while getting in a good nap as needed. :-)

No, Democrats should never be discarded.

Come on. She is an ignoramus who can’t string three intelligible sentences together. He should dump her, but for obvious reasons won’t.

I'm happy for you that you know more about someone you've never met than the most experienced politician on the American scene.

If Biden has a health crisis during the campaign, say hello to another 4 years of Trump.

Phil: Please be honest. Biden picked her because of her sex and her race. Not for her intellectual capability. I have watched her speak many times. Not too bright. A disaster for my Democratic Party waiting to happen.

I'll admit she hasn't wowed me. But I don't know that much about her.

I can say this much. She was bright enough to win a seat in the Senate, something I presume neither of us have accomplished.

Whatever the case may be, she's what we've got, so it's best to get behind her and hope for the best.

Again... She won a seat in the Senate. You didn't.

Whatever her weaknesses may be, and I don't doubt she has some, she can't be stupid, or she wouldn't have beat the very many other people who would have liked to have had that seat in the Senate.

Besides, I've seen your profile photo, and you're just a meth dealer. :-)
