    Actually I thought this comment not so on point.  How can someone complain that Biden omitted MLK from list of viable candidates.  What did he ever run for?  Did I miss that convention?

    And Jackson ran and won primaries, but I agree with Biden that it's not all that viable to run for president without ever holding any kind of elected office or federal level-office (i.e., general) at all.

    I'm not a Biden fan, but come on guys.  Let's get real.  Did you really, really think that Jackson could be elected?  How about Sharpton?  Really?

    The only one I disagre with was Braun, since she certainly was a viable candidate, she just didn't win.
    But her candidacy was so short that I'm not surprised Biden forgot to mention her.
