#1 If I were in their situation I'd want to delay it too.

#2 Bold assumption, Joe will actually make it to August.

#3 They are just hoping that Biden AND Bernie are finished off by the virus and they can just pick a candidate without the interference of annoying voters.

#6 Hot and muggy in Milwaukee around that time.

Lots of feral youth types hangin' out around downtown all hours of the day and night.

#7 With luck, maybe the Dem's plans for a convention will be put on hold forever. Then we can name Trump POTUS for life.

#8 Then we can name Trump POTUS for life.

#10 The Dems only chance in November is to select a popular, likable person with no voting record.

#11 Gosh, Airandee, isn't that what they did in 2008?

#12 As did the republicans in 2016; reluctantly.

#13 Lots of logistics to get in place. Infect Bernie and Biden, build up either Michelle or Hillary to come to the rescue. A couple of funerals to get televised in order to generate symphathy. Generating the story points to blame Trump.

Busy Busy Busy! No time for doing their job!
