Sadly, we need a lot more than charm. He also lacks a plan.

He is winning on name recognition.... Still highly doubtful he will beat Sanders when primaries open...

There are some solid candidates in the Democratic mix but the establishment has decided Biden will be "the guy" just like they pre-picked Hillary in 2016. I personally like Tulsi G and there are a couple of others too that aren't batpoop open borders, free everything crazy.

In the past you could act dumbfounded about Bidens gaffs and seeming lack of self awareness about them.

After almost 4 years of Trump, acting dumbfounded about anything Biden does would imply you should be having a seizure every time Trump opens his mouth.

He talked about his penis size in a debate.

He bragged bout his campaign trip crowd sizes and his opponents lack of said while visiting victims of a mass shooting in a hospital.

He calls people "losers" in his official capacity.

The country jumped the shark when half of it voted for a wrestling manager for it's highest office.

Sanders carries with him the damage of past elections where he was pilloried as anti-black, anti-woman. It's hard to wipe off all the mud that got thrown on him in 2016.

More importantly, (and I agree with them), while I like Bernie he's too far left and would leave a lot of moderates holding their nose for Trump where Biden is viewed as the safe play at beating him.

That's really it in a nutshell folks. The #1 criteria for the democratic nominee this year isn't a specific position or stance etc. but rather beating Trump.

OMG. I have been missing all this fun. Did he seriously say this?

Ha! My advice to Biden would be that when he comes to a fork in the road, he should take it.

I feel bad for Biden... its sad what he's going through. is it worth being president at the age of 78 upon inauguration.... that too for only 1 term?

He should be busy making millions, and saving that money for his family... Post presidency/vice presidency is a time of enrichment...

Biden made $15M in 2017... is it worth going back to $400K?

He said that?????

And he's planning to use the accusation of Trump being a racist as his campaign strategy?

Biden can't help it. When he's not reading a speech someone else has written for him directly off a teleprompter, his racism just naturally comes out. That quote above from yesterday is reminiscent of when he called all Blacks (other than Obama) dirty, stupid, and inarticulate.
