I honestly can’t wait for the debates if the nominee is Biden. It’s going to play out like a Grumpy old Men replay!

you know....I've decided NOT to waste my time on the debates.....unless the facilitator is exceptional at running a rigorous and even handed event. I'll just do my due diligence and cast my vote by mail-in.

You won't have to do your due diligence, just vote for the Dem, no matter who it is.

Joe Biden has over 40% in South Carolina. Bernie is second at 15%. This race could be over quite quickly. The only drama? Who will be VP? Mayor Pete might be just what the ticket needs. Youth to go along with experience.

President Trump has changed the way in which democrats attack candidates. They charged that Presidential candidate Regan was too old, they charged that Presidential candidate McCain's medical history precluded his candidacy, (and his age.) They charged that both were "old white men"
Enter Joe Biden, age 76 1/2, medical history , courtesy of CBS News, October, 2008: "While John McCain's past battles with skin cancer has received a great deal of scrutiny, Joe Biden's near-fatal aneurysms in 1988 have yet to come under the spotlight.
Soon after ending his first presidential bid that year, Biden, who had been suffering from what he thought were headaches and a pinched nerve, collapsed in a hotel room shortly after giving a speech on foreign policy.


In his book "Promises to Keep," Biden says that he was unconscious for over four hours before he woke up in a hospital in Wilmington, Del. The senator was told that an artery was leaking blood into his brain and he was given his last rites by a priest. He was transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center where it was discovered that he had a second aneurysm on the other side of his brain.

Biden immediately underwent a four-and-a-half-hour operation to remove the leaking aneurysm. He had a second surgery in May to repair the other aneurysm and fully recovered after taking a seven-month leave from his seat as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee."

Just another example of Trump changing the political scene.

Campaigning is tough on older bodies, Hillary Clinton appeared to have issues in 2016. Will Donald, Joe, and Bernie also have issues? Still two years of campaigning ahead of the potential nominees. Jet lag, disrupted sleep patterns, plus lots of stress could mentally and physically harm these senior citizen candidates. I know they will all have access to quality medical care but you have to wonder how much they will choose to ignore it. The Donald is obese and has a horrible diet. How about the others?

Biden Jr.; Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey; Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind.; former housing secretary Julián Castro; Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York; former Representative John Delaney of Maryland; Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Senator Kamala Harris of California; Hickenlooper; Gov.

I don't think that I put the hex on Wayne Messam, but I must admit that I was going to bio Steve Bullock next.
