Since the moment he declared he was once again running for president -- in fact since well before then -- Joe Biden has floated near or at the top of the public opinion polls.

This guy has been deep in the system for half a century, knows all the rules and how to get things done, yet he has nothing to show for all that time except becoming a millionaire nine times over.

Biden is the least exciting candidate available to the democrats.

He's tepid water.

He's literally my last choice from the Democratic nominees.

I'm sure he'll get the nod from the DNC superdelegates and lose to Trump in the general election.

He's been a politician for 50 years and only has $9 million to show for it?

What a piker.

He's the Democrats' Romney/McCain.

He also has the best head-to-head polling against Trump compared to his opponents within his own party.

So did Romney against Obama, and look how that turned out. That being said, while the lunatic fringes on the Right hated Obama, more people dislike Trump across the spectrum so I would guess that Biden has an "advantage" in that comparison.

#3. Agreed, Clown. If Biden can be credibly blamed for using his office to corruptly enrich himself it just shows that he sucks at corruption.

If the dnc wants to rope the drive-bys in... get Biden. He's the only one of the current loopies that stand a chance.

With Biden, Will Democrats Be Both Safe and Sorry?

"Sorry" they will be, but where do they get "safe" from? "Safe" from what? Attacks on Joe and Hunter? "Hunter Biden - lock him up!" "Corrupt / Crooked Joe - he must go!"

Dems have a gaggle of "long past due and expired by 'date of elections'" socialists, a Babyface and some nondescript senator who happens to be a woman?

Trump needs to be contrasted by someone credible with real life accomplishments. After Kamala exit ("not socialist or billionaire" - thanks, McCain-Feingold) the only credible and highly contrasting accomplished candidate who beats Trump on all checkmarks now is Bloomberg (real businessman, real self-made billionaire, not trust-fund baby who failed in investments, real estate and negotiating / deals, 10-30 times richer than Trump, can insult Trump without childish name-calling - even people who voted against Hillary because "Trump is a businessman" or didn't vote would vote for Mayor Mike in droves.)

Bloomberg is running because he can spend money on himself (and the party / other candidates) as a candidate that he couldn't otherwise due to stupidity of McCain-Feingold that was sold as "taking the money from politics" while doing exactly the opposite. That already shows more intelligence than any of the Dem candidates involved in the so-called "debates".

He also might get a VP like Kamala, or someone palatable in 2024/2028 who would be 10 times preferable to droid Pence.

Trump already tried to take a shot at Bloomberg and failed miserably after being shut down by a single tweet-back. Trump can't run against Bloomberg like "saving the country / world from 'socialism'" - that's not Bloomberg's narrative or persona.

Or Dems could repeat experience of "old and tired" Hillary! - choose someone who is even less acceptable to few thousand people in few Midwest states than Trump. How "safe" is that?

If Biden a "safe" (read 'default') option because others are not electable, then there is still time to change the course. Or do Dems, like GOP, need at least 8 years to learn self-evident lessons?

What a pitiful bunch to put against one of the worst presidential candidates of all time!

He's Gore. He's Kerry. He's Hillary.

He's the corporate sellout status quo candidate that no one is excited about.

He'll have the same fate if we're dumb enough to nominate him.

It's not a pep rally. It's an election.

Keep that in mind

For today's Republicans, elections are pep rallies.

Pep rally size correlates to votes.

To be honest, he's about the only democrat that could realistically beat Trump. I would vote for him.

Be honest Boaz, if in November your choices are Trump, Biden, and a short list of other party candidates, are you going to vote Biden in the booth? You said this once before but then made it seem like you would still pull the lever for Trump at the end. I have a hard time believing that you would actually vote Biden when it comes down to it.

The only question is that if he were to win: Who is the puppet master pulling his strings?
