It's obvious to me the decision makers in the democrat party are in a conundrum.

They want Biden to be the nominee because they realize the other candidates are fruitcakes. At the same time, they realize Biden can't win against Trump, especially with all the flubs he is making and the surfacing questions about both his mental and physical health.

I still am of the opinion someone else will step forward at the last minute and it wouldn't surprise me if it was Michelle. That would change everything.

The Democrats message is to ban everything, restrict everything, put government in charge of your choices, and tax you even more to give to Illegal Aliens. They hate freedom, liberty and the fact you have rights. The Constitution is meaningless to them.

I think Andrew Yang will really get some momentum the next debate. Much more progressive views than the current dems running.

. . . straws, lightbulbs, and cheeseburgers?

Elizabeth Warren: ". . . this is exactly what the fossil fuel industry hopes we're all talking about"

I agree and anyone with an ounce of common sense should also realize this BUT the Left has spent years undermining Trump and everything he stands for. Having brain washed the masses into believing the propaganda my fear is that the Dems could nominate a paper bag and as long as the Lefty media presents it as not racist, misogynist, or any other "ist" or "ism" they have labelled Trump with the paper bag would win in a landslide.

‘republican cultural wars’ is what they’re now calling any resistance to leftist cultural marxism.

A better headline for Politico...

“If we want to win elections, we better keep our dumbass ideas quiet”

Interesting take. I'm currently deciding between Biden and Warren as the major Dem candidate with the worst chance against President Trump (I live in an open primary state and will be voting in the Dem Primary but voting for President Trump in the general). I used to think that Warren would stand the worst chance against President Trump. But now as I've been seeing this fool Biden behave on the campaign trail, I'm not so sure.

If Biden could get his act together, he'd have the best chance to defeat Trump. Warren has a lot of similarities to Hillary and is totally unlikeable. Plus, her ideas are downright whacky.

However, I just don't see Biden's ability to counteract his age, frailness, mental instability and failing health in general. Plus he's an "Old White Guy" which doesn't fly in today's Democrat Party, although they'd run Hitler if he could beat Trump.

That was my initial fear of Warren. And I think that's how it could very well turn out in a Trump-Warren match up. But I've also been concerned about her support among leftists. She'll get the Hillary voters, but her strength among far left makes it likely that she'll also get the Stein voters and the Bernie voters who sat out last time. Now, her far leftism may make her unpalatable to moderates who are fed up with President Trump and looking for an alternative. But I'm not sure. Its definitely something I'm going back and forth on!
