Barack Obama wins the Democratic primary

Politico

Released from his self-imposed neutrality, the former president will soon make the case for Biden that Biden has had trouble making himself.

By RYAN LIZZA

In the end, the most influential politician of 2020 may be the one who has been the most silent.

With Bernie Sanders exiting the race and Joe Biden taking on the mantle of presumptive nominee, the man who hovered quietly over the race for more than a year, Barack Obama, will soon return to the political fray.

Obama wanted Sanders to have the day to himself and so he refrained from speaking (or tweeting) publicly on Wednesday. But Obama had always said his role in the primaries would be to unite the party when it’s over, and he’s been in close contact with both campaigns as the pandemic both froze the race without a clear victor and also made it more obvious that Biden would eventually prevail.

“Over the last few weeks, he’s had multiple conversations with candidates, including Sen. Sanders, about how to best position the Democratic Party to win in November,” said a source familiar with those calls. “While the content of those conversations remain private, there was always agreement that winning in the fall was paramount.”

1. Bull ryan lizza.. I don't need your negativity on Joe Biden..

 

Joe Biden has Made his case since you haven't noticed.. and he spent 4x Less $$$$ to WIN than Sanders did to Lose.

Looking Forward to President Obama and Michelle campaigning With Joe Biden and Dr Jill Biden.

5. It's odd

 

Ryan Lizza, who got caught up in his own Me Too thing, believes Biden had trouble articulating why he was running given that he beat Bernie from coast to coast.

Seems like he knows how to win on his own. Again, he beat Bernie who was anointed as a shoe in by some here — cough — OP — cough.

6. I think Biden HAS made the case for himself to the voetersthe ones who count!

 

More of the Biden is a weak candidate nonsense. He is where he is because of his strengths. He madehis case and won the nomination (to be ratified soon enough).

When Obama comes in for Joe, it will be he same team that gave us 8 great years.

Go Joe!

7. Yeah, I can see why you would post this article

 

Little digs against Biden and fueling the theory without saying so directly that the Dem party worked behind the scenes to deny BS the nomination.
