22. Attack don't defend

This is actually a real issue and in general one that will work for Biden. However in specific areas it could hurt and so hurt in some states and for some races. It very easily could hurt Espy in Mississippi and MJ in Texas for example. Because it isn't fracking its oil.

Trump couldn't save Coal. Reality just cannot be fought. So we either go with transitioning and win the race or put our heads in the sand and let somebody else. Spending the next 30 years transitioning is not radical it is only sensible and will probably end up being way to slow.

That pretty much makes the attackers defend. While it is not a ringing endorsement of Biden's environmental policies, it doesn't need to be. What is needed is a way to allow people permission to vote for him even in the oil and gas patches.
