5. It reminds me of the debates over a 'nuclear freeze' in the 80s...

The argument on the right was that if we agreed to a nuclear freeze we were locking in our inferiority. The demurrer was always asking the person making that argument if he would rather have the Soviet Union's hand (nuclear arsenal) or ours .


I rather have our hand than the GOP's hand by a substantial but not absolute magnitude. Holding the White House three times in a row is hard!

4. Anyone who opposes Hillary Clinton's rightful ascent to the presidency is a misogynist

QED

6. Just to point out that Biden voted for the IWR, Patriot Act, and was opposed to the raid against

bin laden.

On most issues he is definitely progressive, but taking your assertion that Hillary is not viable, you do realize in the current polls Biden trails Hillary by a large margin. I understand he has not declared, and that may change, but your statement that Hillary is not viable at this point in time makes no sense

7. Love Joe but I don't see him being to the left of HRC....

He also benefits from being above the political fray and enjoying slightly higher favorables than Hillary...It should be pointed out Hillary had favorable in the high 60s when she was SOS. Once she entered the political fray they went down precipitously.

8. I think your analysis is right on. It would definitely create more suspense in the Democratic

selection process. I don't think Sanders or O'Malley supporters would shift over to Biden, I am not sure if some Hillary supporters would jump over to Biden

The one advantage that Biden could use is run as a continuation of Most of President Obama's policies

9. He did vote against Kyl-Lieberman

which Hillary voted for. But true, why vote for either when Sanders is actually good on the issues.

13. No, but Obama fans who are now Hillary supporters might....

 

Especially the ones who remember how nasty things got in '08.

Besides, if you like the Obama Era than Biden is the way to continue his legacy.

Biden would keep a lot of Obama's crew on in his own cabinet.

14. I agree that Biden could say he will continue the policies of Obama, and that would be a positive

for him. Right now however, his poll numbers are dismal against Hillary in the primaries, and he comes in behind Bernie also. I understand much of that could be due to that he hasn't declared yet, but he has enough name recognition visibility that I would think he would at least come in higher in the polls.

This is not his first run at trying to be president. Joe has tried to run for President two times before, and this would be his third time. One has to question if he has the popularity within the party. This would be his third time at trying to run, and maybe third time is a charm, but I am pretty skeptical.

I know some folks will disagree with me, but I don't see much difference between Hillary and Joe as far as the issues are concerned.

18. I think Joe would make a good president because he relates to the common folk.....

 

They would always be the ones he would be working for.

20. His baggage would fit in an overnight bag

not a whole freight car going back to the 90's.....

And the republicans aren't going to stop with emails and Benghazi...they will go all the way back to both of the Clintons' early days in Arkansas and what effect they could have had on Mrs. Clinton. I don't want us to lose the presidency and the choice of the next Supreme to be appointed.

15. Neither is he.

I'd support Clinton before I'd support Biden, and that says quite a bit, since I'd have to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to the polls for HRC.
