#1 No way I believe a non-candidate like Biden would beat Trump.

If a young, Bill Clinton like candidate was running I would say Trump was in serious trouble, but not no-show Groper.

#2 We just have to wait and see who the Demos actually put up as a nominee.

Joe is obviously on the way out so????? Lizzie, Bernie, Kammie, Andy or some total dark horse?

I can see this getting really ugly depending on them trying to replace their demented old jack-ass.

#3 Dems invented the Torricelli maneuver. They can be expected to repeat it. Of course, "Borking" only worked against Bork, so we can always hope for a massive FAIL again.

#4 Not picking Bernie could cause ... problems. Picking anyone will cause problems.

#5 I expect Michelle Obama with a "Make America Hope Again" slogan or some shallow marketing thing like that to appeal to blacks and liberals. I also think she would have to dodge debates as she has no real experience in anything beyond watching her husband (how'd that work out for Hillary?)

#8  No way I believe a non-candidate like Biden would beat Trump.

The assumption in some quarters that it’s actually Joe’s VP versus Trump, not that that improves the odds.

#9 According to the internet... Biden had two brain surgeries back in 1988. Decide for yourself if he should be a viable candidate for President of the USA.

#10 This is NOT a logical process.... but simply a media process. Decide for yourself if this is what it is or should be.

#11 I don't believe we've seen enough of old Joe to accurately judge his real state. But the longer he stays in his basement the more people will wonder and rightfully so. He'll either have to come out swinging at some point or let somebody else have a go. Problem is, if they replace him with anybody but Bernie, they're gonna lose the Bernie vote. But then, if they nominate Bernie, the lose anyway. Maybe they have become increasingly loud and shrill because they know they have no good options. Maybe they'll try another impeachment.

#12 Gosh, Ospas, I would have thought any surgery he had was the plugs but it appears that you are correct.

Well, it appears sometimes that he has difficulty expressing himself sometimes..

#13 Information is coming at your six ways from Sunday. It will always be this way. Forever into the future. It is not something one can control or organize into a nice sequential process. "Mom, can you please help me?" Those days are gone. "Did I say gone ? Yes I did ! " Nature being what it is..... I recommend we all decide for yourselves. The USA is devolving into a disorderly construct. The past 5 decades were comforting ( half century for this ewho cann't pay attention. 50 years is a sufficiently long enough time to decern a "trend". Take it for what it was. The time to grow a backbone and decide what is real and what is not is here. Tradecraft has long taught me that one has to stand on one's own two feet. Not parental advice, but one's self. Take what comes along and make your own decision. You cannot, repeat.... cannot ask that other people take responsibility for your own choices. The time for choosing is now...... I have made mine. You make yours. See you on the battle field. Either your are in front of me or..... beside each other. Your choice. Time to be self actualized. Google it if you don't comprehend. I've stopped long ago trying to accommodate idiots. May they remain on the battle field... Antiedam or Gettiysburg . Literally hundreds of mu ancestors were there. I can list them by name. Can you? The 2nd 1865 is coming. How it will unfold is not relevant... but is will shortly unfold in your life time..... That is all that is important and frightening. I never wanted it to be, but its beyond my control. That I can tell. Decide for yourself what you will choose to do. Choice is everything.

#14 Please forgive me for my spelling misakes. I'm human. Are you ?

#16 We're all human. We all make mistakes, both spelling and otherwise. But I like to think that we don't all stumble over our words like Joe does. I'm not sure if it's dementia, brain farts or what. But he does appear to have a problem.

#17 @ "trailing wife" I made a comment while in Dhahran about 15 years ago to you on this website. You noticeable became scared and thought I was a "jihadi" at the time. I wish to apologize for that.....but....the internet being what it is, and the fact that we can't see who is infront of us talking..... it does change the human conversation dynamic. We are all learning to adjust when someone comments and isn't physically in-front of us at the time we talk. I don't know who you are "trailing wife' but I have good idea. You probably now have a good idea too of who I am from my recent comments......long winded.... so be it. Just wanted you to know that I'm sorry about scaring you. Didn't mean to do that. Took years to make my apology.... but I had to safely retire before posting this. Chow.....

Ospas Dhahran 49, forgiveness gladly given. I’m sorry I misunderstood you then, and I’m very glad you came back. Congratulations on your retirement! May it be all you hoped for and more, though if you are like Mr. Wife and several others around here, you'll find yourself working about as hard on projects of your own choosing as you did when you were in the payroll, despite plans to sleep until noon and grow a beer belly (or to finally take the time to recover the body of your youth). ;-)

#19 I saw two Biden for Prez ads this afternoon on HGTV. Other than climate change, his platform is very much like Trump's - less China, more American jobs, more American productss, more small business.

I didn't catch anything about law and order, however.

#20 Trump has probably been leading in the polls all along. The pollsters are not trustworthy.

#21 Weird thing for me is I watch YouTube a lot lately and I get Biden and Trump ads in equal measure. It seems as if they aren't targeted at all.

#22 I suspect current polls matter less than ballot fiddling will.
