9. As I have said before, this is last shot at relevance and history...

 

He knows he can't run again in '24. Shit, he knows the odds are against him even being alive in four years.

Most politicians instinctively know when to drop out and and then align with the leader. It's how they got where they are and how not to drop lower. Note the earlier dropouts refused to endorse anyone until they saw how the winds are blowing. Then they know how to maximize their resources for the win. And, just coincidentally, maximize their connection with the presumed winner.

Not Bernie, though. Delusional might be the word. It also helps explain his abysmal record as a Congressman and Senator.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
