Gee, I guess they are not that progressive if they still have old White men like that!

LOL. Ironic, considering how much they hate ‘the man’. I can see old Joe as a plantation boss.

Default How ironic is it that the Democratic frontrunners are 2 old, White men?

as much time as they spend sneering at 'old white men' it is deliciously ironic.

The establishment is prompting the media to push Biden hard since they already know he plays ball the right way from the Obama era. The voters just do what the TV tells them and treats it like a popularity/name recognition contest.

Then you have the hardcore Communists who lay awake at night dreaming about another Jewish-Bolshevik revolution. So Bernie is their guy.

The Republican party isn't critical of him because of the color of his skin.

It is comical. I can't help but crack up.

The whole lot of the Democrat candidates are mostly a clown show.

Does the Democratic party have anyone that can compete with Trump?

It is interesting to note that once again it is the old white guy. We have been fighting for so long to give equal opportunities to all and we see that the system still favors the old white guy -- lol.

However...it is promising to see how many women and other minorities have been added to the House in the last election.

If folks keep fighting maybe eventually we will have two women or two people of color being the front runner.

But for those that think that the 'left' just push minorities without considering other factors should get some comfort in knowing that for the most part, people still balance out experience, political ideology, etc......and not just the color of their skin or sex. l

I suspect that a Trump fan would think nobody could compete with Trump.

BUT....that last election was mighty close. So many factors to consider.

And while you may feel strongly in support of Trump and some may feel strongly against Trump -- the votes that really count are the ones that don't have that strong feeling about Trump. We have no clue how they will vote.

Um, the OP is saying the same thing Kamala Harris did....and Warren for that matter.

Plus I've seen several articles on CNN etc. saying it as well.

You should probably listen a little more to some of the female democratic candidates and at least hear them out because clearly you've paid zero attention to them so far.

And this is what many are saying.

And you know what, even if I'm not inclined to vote for Harris or Warren, I appreciate HEARING that I should consider them -- not to jump to old habits of the old white guy.

It's important.

Changing habits, stereotypes takes time and effort.

At least the Democrats are trying.

I know Republican woman don't feel that they are under represented in Washington DC but the numbers suggest otherwise.
