    Who can then? Which of the other Dem candidates are not carrying enough baggage to sink them?

    Trump's shortcomings are legion but his oee advantage can easily outweigh all of them. The economy is prosperous. We don't want to run anyone who even might make it look like they could kibosh that, (and believe me, Trump will be saying just that, constantly and loudly., no matter who they are)

    And so what? We should never engage in military operations because they may go wrong? Biden is some great military planner who knew better than the JCS and our Special Forces? He was wrong here as was his advice to Obama on Iraq.

    It's a great question. And I'm not sure I have the answer. I've just noticed a slowing down in Joe when he speaks to a crowd (not his speech, per se, but in his overall demeanor). We need a leader with boundless energy and the ability to counter punch Trump without it becoming nasty from the Dem side. I'm afraid that's what it would become with Joe.

    I hope Biden does become nasty. Somebody needs to show Trump that smart and nice-nasty beats dumb and mean-nasty any day of the week.

    Again, Biden isn't perfect,but he's the best one to assure people he won't upset the apple cart. People don't WANT to vote for the most ironclad bastard, total crook and dangerous psychopath I've yet seen in any office, let alone as President, but they may feel their 401K will tolerate nothing else.

    In the 2016 pres debates, I felt Hillary left a truckload unsaid and on the table. She really didn't rise to the challenge. I would like to see someone rise to the challenge, but not play at Trump's level. You can counter punch intelligently, sticking to facts and subject matter, without having to get 'nasty'. That would best highlight Trump's childishness and show the country what it would be like to have an adult back in the oval.

    Biden IS nasty and has been for a long time and does not show the judgement to be CnC.

    Why do you not care for a self appointed military expert such as Trump who had done so many times?
