Somewhere Joe must feel really aggrieved. After months of having his dead son shill for him to enter the race, and his long Hamlet-inspired decision, he's back to wrap the noose around her neck. With frenemies like this, who needs fambily?
More I wonder who actually cares? Biden was always themilque toast guy sent in to cut an unpalatable deal, roll it over. Mr. Insurance is now an export on income inequality? Took him long enough to figure it out.
By my count, Hillary has endorsements from 197 congresspeople and governors, while Bernie had 2, now a 3rd. My only real reaction is "Why did she take on a role with these fuckers? They were never going to give her credit for playing with the team." except of course she would have burned out playing a kibbutz z Ing Sarah Palin on the sideline.
My 2nd reaction is "where do they get these polls saying Bernie will beat any Republican? GOP central? Burlington bambus paper? These bastards have so much money they'll swamp him, and he'll be stuck stammering with one of his Bernieisms. Nice guy, but democracy shouldn't be a suicide pact. Dems won the last 2 elections by only 7%, AMD there's little about the eloquent-spoken next generation message that Bernie can grab onto - who were the Dems best bets over the last 50 years? JFK, RFK, Carter, Clinton, and Obama - all symbols of change. There's not much new Sanders can offer, especially with the way the conservative movement's changed things. Even in 1972 when Bowie declared himself gay he was doomed in "puritanical" America. It ain't got better the last 15 years. Gamble it away, but they're setting us up if we think this is a Berning point - reads both ways.
