Looks like you failed modern history!

"The 2008 presidential campaign of Joe Biden, the longtime Senator from Delaware, began when Biden announced his candidacy for President of the United States on the January 7, 2007"


"Seven months after the conclusion of his campaign, Biden was selected to be Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's vice presidential running mate. The pair won in the general election, and were sworn in on January 20, 2009."

The following 8 candidates have qualified for the next two Democratic debates.

#1- Elizabeth Warren
#2- Bernie Sanders
#3- Cory Booker
#4- Kamala Harris
#5- Beto O'Roarke
#6- Amy Klobuchar
#7- Pete Buttigieg
#8- Joe Biden

Three more candidates have qualified from contributions, but have not yet qualified based on polling.
Julian Castro and Andrew Yang have made 3 of the necessary 4 polls, and Tulsi Gabbard has made 1 of them.

The last day to qualify is August 28th.

At least we don’t have to listen to De Blasio anymore.

What is the draw to Yang, saying your giving $1,000 a month is not fixing the wealth gap. I would like to see his taxes.

Tulsi Gabbard not fitting neatly into any party makes her a moderate and doesn't apologize for it. So the establishment does their best to nudge her out.

Good to see the Democrats falling in line with ole Joe. I never believed they would select someone with progressive ideas to be their candidate. Biden will be 78 on Inauguration Day 2021. 82 to begin a second term. Biden is looking to become the oldest candidate ever elected president.

I'd like to see both Castro and Gabbard make the next two debates.

All candidates have the same requirements, so no one is being pushed out by different requirements.

Do you honestly think Biden has any appeal to younger voters? IMO Mr. Trump is the last ďold guyĒ we will see in the Oval Office.
