11. As a Sanders supporter my only consternation is over the nonsense that the race needs an alternative

to Clinton. Sanders already offers an alternative to Clinton (as do O'Malley, Chaffe, and Webb for that matter), and the implication that Biden somehow better fills that role annoys me somewhat.

With that said, I'm happy for more voices generally, but I'm not sure that Biden's voice is really all that different from Clinton's, and I am not really looking forward to watching Biden enter a race only to conclude his long and distinguished career as a third-place "also ran," which seems to be the likeliest outcome. Fortunately, I think a Biden run is extremely unlikely.
