It's About Biden

Former Vice President Joe Biden may not be the perfect candidate, but he is certainly the only one who could give President Trump a realistic run for his money (though we still don’t know the amount). While many of the other Democratic contenders are highly qualified, they do not have the leadership experience, name recognition, compassion or appeal that Biden has. Plus, Biden is a unifier, which is exactly what this country needs right now.

Unfortunately, Democrats seem to eat their own, further diminishing any chance of defeating Trump. Having grown up in Delaware as a lifelong Biden supporter, I am obviously very biased.

 

If I could wave a magic wand, my wish would be for other Democratic contenders to rally behind Biden and work toward the common goal of restoring dignity, honor and humanity in the White House.

 

As for running mates, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, one of the most intelligent and authentic of the bunch, would be a formidable pick, followed by Maryland Rep. John Delaney, a successful businessman and solid moderate.
