1. There is no evidence of a Republican epiphany.

2. Joe needs to have an epiphany

 

Or just remember what happened during his eight years as VP.

3. Trump and his enablers in my world view are the samething.

 

Unless Democrats get the Senate expect more divided Government. I am glad there are a few optimists still around I am not one of them.

6. Maybe Joe will choose John Kasich as his running mate.

 

A little olive branch to get McConnell & CO. back into the groove of bipartisanship.

14. Nice to know that you feel that Joe will win the nomination.

 

Only way he will be able to choose the running mate that you reference.

Also, note that Joe did not refer to his winning the nomination. He simply stated (paraphrasing) that should Trump be defeated then the Repubs will play nice. Why does everyone automatically attack him as though he is declaring himself the winner?

I sense a lot of panic going on...


Those darn polls...

12. This is not an example of not playing nice. It is equivalent to any number of promises progressives

 

make. And, as with progressives, may be well-intentioned. He might believe it. Voters can decide if they do, but I don’t think most Americans are holding their breaths.
At the same time, Biden has a better chance than most to get any bipartisan legislation accomplished. This will probably be on a few issues and mean more compromise than we’d all like.
I don’t think Trump’s party, as it stands now, will like any Dem becoming president.
But your post headline is the usual Biden-baiting. It’s the “guess what Joe just did” or said today or three decades ago.
If he wins the presidency, you can be among the first to say how’s that epiphany thingy workin for ya Joe?
Or could be a good snicker line at the debates.
See Joe just isn’t being honest with voters...

16. Biden seems to be running an extremely strong campaign.

 

There is no one path to victory outside of the ballot box. Time will tell. I personally love how he is campaigning. Things like this will help him a lot. No one thinks he is playing nice with Trump.

18. He's dominating the polls because of name recognition.

20. Actually, no. He's dominating in the polls because of his message.

 

Both he and Bernie Sanders have 100% name recognition among voters.

Elizabeth Warren also has enviable name recognition numbers.

The rest of the pack have lower numbers.

But, name recognition is not what distinguishes Biden from everyone else. It is far more than that. He also enjoys trust and approval from higher numbers than the rest. That comes, primarily, from his 8 years as Barack Obama's VP.

He also went after Donald Trump hard in his initial campaign announcement. That, by itself, earned him a lot of support, because Democrats are deathly sick of Trump and want him gone. He is the only candidate to have made Trump the main issue. In that, he made the best decision he could possibly have made, and took the lead in going after Trump.

It's not just his name recognition. Nope.

19. Let's see...Joe Biden Is Rising in the Polls...

 

So, you're suggesting that he needs to get angry or something, instead of projecting a stable, positive demeanor?

Really?

He is angry. He's angry at Donald J. Trump. His launch speech was all about that anger. Do you think he should stop doing that, too?

Makes no sense at all, really, unless you'd like to see him dropping in the polls instead of going up.
