    Say what you will, Hillary Clinton is not a great campaigner. The time she got tired in 2008, she made important mistakes.

    Biden ???

    A smooth roll over the GOP candidate. And he never does the smirky, know-it-all face that Hillary does without thinking.

    •  Ot, but I think Biden is too old and will (2+ / 0-)

      loose the young vote (they'll stay home). I am uneasy myself.

      He is too old. We want a two term President. Statistics have the likelyhood of his death in office from natural causes in the double digits.

      I am going on science not emotions here. I would not vote for any man 65 or woman over 70 right now (women outlive men in the US by more than 5 yrs).

      Perhaps if all four grandparents and both parents (ALL) lived past 80 I might consider it. You never know which genes a particular offspring carries.

      Also, Biden makes too many gaffes. He's too open. He never did well EVEN in Dem primaries and should tell us something.

      I am very fond of Biden as a person, ,as far as I could be not knowing him.

      But the thought of him as the nominee makes me cringe. He could EASILY be beat and I feel those who think he can't are in denial, no offense.
