Response to Hekate (Reply #43)

Mon Apr 29, 2019, 02:30 PM

56. A few years back,

I sent a link to one of DU essays to one of my associates. She said that I write exactly how I speak, and that my writing was simply a conversation that I have with myself inside my head. She was, of course, correct. And each of my children could swear to the fact that I do ramble!

I've always liked Joe Biden. As we entered the 2016 primary season, he was my first choice. And I really liked him as vice president -- at the very least, tied with Gore as the best VP in modern times. Yet I, too, had thought it might be better if three of the older people who had run in recent times step aside, and serve as elder statespersons for a new generation.

Having seen his new video, I've changed my mind. I'm not sure if he will win our party's nomination, and I really do not have a favorite at this time. I will work hard for whoever is the Democratic Party's nominee in 2020. But whatever the outcome of the primaries, I thank Joe Biden for saying what needs to be said, over and over. And I am especially pleased that it got under Trump's skin.
