Hooray for Joe



Biden says if he'd run for president he could have won - ABC News

Quote:
Biden told students at Colgate University in central New York on Friday that he could have won the election but the Democratic primary would have been "very difficult."

Biden said his son Beau's battle with brain cancer kept him out of the race.

The Observer-Dispatch of Utica reports ( Colgate visit: Biden speaks of past, present, future - News - Uticaod - Utica, NY ) that Biden said anyone who runs for president should be able to "look the public in the eye and promise you they can give you 100 percent."

Biden says he doesn't regret not running but added, "Do I regret not being president? Yes."

Instead, the Democrats pushed the worst possible candidate at the worst possible time in her career. Joe can connect with people. Hillary does not.

LOL. he is correct.

Small detail. It was "Hillarys turn" This is what happens when you push an awful person with no hook. Trump is an awful person but he has a hook.

I agree with him. It's not very hard to figure out how unpopular Hillary was or has been her entire life. End result was we got much worse as the president.

Could/would Joe have won?
Maybe, maybe not.
As stated, he would have had to distance himself from obama.
He probably would have been a better candidate than hillary.
But then, nearly anybody would have been.
I probably would not have voted for him.

I have felt for a year that the worst thing to happen to the country in a long time was Joe Bidden's son dying. I mean Hillary was a terrible candidate and she still won the popular vote. Many Trump voters were Hell bent on Anybody but Hillary. There should be little question that his comment has merit, personally I have no doubt he would have won.

Trump got lucky, his opponent was one of the most flawed candidates in history.
