If he's our best chance of winning the White House, I wouldn't be so optimistic.
Biden won’t be the nominee. One of the younger candidates will. My fav is Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Another issue is that some really good people, like the Governor of Montana, don’t want to run for the Senate. My suspicion is because Senator Mitch McConnell has such a firm hold and won’t bring bills to the floor for a vote.

Sad what our country is becoming.
