If the Democrats field an establishment candidate again it'll be easy pickings for Trump.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

Democrats need to put up a moderate-to-conservative Democrat if they want to get the White House.

But they won't. They will put up someone so far to the left as to be unelectable.

-8 ( +1 / -9 )

Trump will not be voted for again except for cult 45er. But Biden will not be voted for either because same old same old. Partisanship politics has gotten very very stale.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

The last time Biden ran for POTUS he couldn't even garner 1% of the vote in his home state during the democrat primaries. So, yeah, throw your hat into the ring, Uncle Joe. Do your part to further bankrupt the DNC.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

You can criticize Biden for a lot of things but where he shines happens to be the most important places. It looks like we're in a period where we're voting for old people for president. Being old myself I wasn't for that but there is so much about Biden that bodes well for this country, if he runs, I'm voting for him.

I watched Biden’s speech and thought he looked and sounded very Presidential. It will be interesting to see what happens next. In the meantime though, BLUE NOVEMBER!!

Doubt it, the economy, the revised tax code, deregulation’s, interest in reinvesting in the US, 4.2 GDP, rebuilding the middle class, working class and middle America and the Democrats offer...

The Democrats have no one.

Cuddling up to young women? Creepy uncle Joe?

No way, the guy is another entrenched Washington establishment hack.

Biden? Should be interesting, but doubt he can get ahead of Trump. Hold the line!

The left turning McCain's marathon memorials into a series of partisan political events will end up backfiring on them, ala the Wellstone memorial In 2002. The republicans should be thanking Biden and the democrats for unknowningly providing a series of "yuge" campaign rallies for them.

I thought that "when you're famous they let you do it"? Now that it's not Trump you're suddenly concerned about women?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

I just want someone, ANYONE, to beat Trump in 2020.

I do not believe Trump knows that Biden was a United States Senator for 36 years; what does Trump have in his background other than bankrupt businesses?

2 ( +4 / -2 )

I think Biden is too old to run. He will be 77 in 2020. Once you get to that age the physical and mental capabilities are in decline. Surely they can find someone new to run, instead of the same old faces.

"what does Trump have in his background other than bankrupt businesses?"

He must have some successful businesses, otherwise he wouldn't be a BILLIONAIRE.

Biden-Mueller 2020!

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

Why would Mueller be on the Democratic ticket? He's a lifelong Republican. He's also too busy to run and, as far as I know, has no ambition to hold elected office. Perhaps you know differently?

This is why liberals shouldn’t govern based on that statement alone.

I do not believe Trump knows that Biden was a United States Senator for 36 years; what does Trump have in his background other than bankrupt businesses?

Casinos, billions, plane (with his name on it) helicopter, golf courses, his own building (with his name on it) a number one 14 year long number one TV show and the Presidency.

What does “Joe” have?

Why would Mueller be on the Democratic ticket? He's a lifelong Republican.

Given his history with Democrats, it would seem fitting for him.

He's also too busy to run and, as far as I know, has no ambition to hold elected office. Perhaps you know differently?

He would never win even if he ran.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Do you have any photos of Trump groping women?

Who needs photos? He's admitted it. Unless you're suggesting that the President is an insecure loser who lies about sexually harassing women to try and impress z-list celeb Billy Bush.

Hm, well, maybe that is the case. It explains why he needs to pay porn stars for sex.

Given his history with Democrats, it would seem fitting for him.

It would be more fitting for him to run as a Republican. Since his history with them is that he's been a Republican for his entire adult life.

He would never win even if he ran.

Certainly not if he ran as a Democratic Party VP candidate. He'd have a better chance as a Republican. Which, given that he is a Republican, makes sense.

No, but as Sneezy pointed out, there is an audio tape of him bragging about it. Would that do?

Casinos, billions, plane (with his name on it) helicopter, golf courses, his own building (with his name on it) a number one 14 year long number one TV show and the Presidency.

The casinos went bankrupt. The billions of dollars that he has amassed have not been properly accounted for since he won't release his tax returns. As far as having your name on an airship, there was this guy named Paul von Hindenburg, and if I recall, that didn't turn out so well. His reality TV show was never #1. The highest it ever got was #7 in 2004. Lastly, I wonder why you failed to mention some of his other business track records, which can be seen here:

Finally, I wouldn't consider what he has done to the Presidency as any sort of accomplishment. He is a disgrace to the office and is an embarrassment to the sane members of the U.S population. November cannot come soon enough.

Seems like this is just getting started for Main Street benefits... Wonder what Joe's plans are in 2020 for Main Streeters?

It would be great to see Biden enter the race just to hear his comments, but the Dems need a fresh face.

Bass: rebuilding the middle class, working class

The trend is continuing where the bottom half are seeing frozen wages. The GOP’s platform is to take care of the top half, more specifically the top 10%, who reap nearly all of the benefits of American capitalism these days.

Did you hear that Trump wants to cut the top capital gains rate to benefit the top 1%, while at the same to freezing government wages? Pretty much sums up his committment to the working class.

"It would be great to see Biden enter the race just to hear his comments"

Not only hear his comments but get destroyed in the debates, assuming he came back for a second beating. Of course if he took Trump behind the gym like he threatened, he would suffer another beating, even worse than the beating Vince McMahon received, haha!

@Sneezy - OK, let's make it Biden-Ocasio-Cortez!

@Jimizo - Har!

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Just a quick reminder to the left, Ocasio-Cortez is the Democratic socialist who won her election earlier in the year. The bubble has her on the front pages of their media daily saying we all love and support her destructive socialist policies.

Ask a bubble dweller if you want to know more about her. She fell out of the headlines on the left after her election win.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Expect Bubble dwellers to go into full going out in a blaze of glory mode before November. It's kinda funny to see them shrieking about the so-called "elitist deep state" after we watched them all a few years back cheer on everything GWB did, ever.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Oh the bubble is just getting started. They will have conservatives paralyzed in fear....with GOP candidates as their only "savior."

North Korea does that, too. They might not be happy with their government, but Un is the only thing standing between the people and Americans who want to invade and kill them all...so....

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Can’t possibly see Dems voting in a white male as their presidential candidate for the foreseeable future. The hatred for them runs too deep in the party right now. You missed your chance Joe. Now go get a biker chick to give you another lap dance.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

No, but as Sneezy pointed out, there is an audio tape of him bragging about it. Would that do?

Ok, but that’s bragging. With Biden, there’s a lot of videos where creepy uncle Joe is groping women.....and saying strange things to them.

The casinos went bankrupt.

Vegas and Macau are fine.

he won't release his tax returns.

He doesn’t have to, Funny when Hillary was asked to turn over her medical records she didn’t, so the left keep whipping that dead horse.

As far as having your name on an airship, there was this guy named Paul von Hindenburg, and if I recall, that didn't turn out so well.

Ok, but we’re talking about Trump. Anyway, so Biden doesn’t have a plane, can’t buy a plane if you’re not successful.

His reality TV show was never #1. The highest it ever got was #7 in 2004.

That’s high and in TV if you are in the top ten, that is winning.

So again, if Biden wants to run, please go ahead, it’ll be like watching a slow motion NAT Geo kill.

Age does not guarantee wisdom. I've always said, there is no fool like an old fool.

And you've got a lot of younger voters that would most likely vote for someone more youthful than Biden. Even Bernie is considered to be past the "due date".

I watched Biden’s speech and thought he looked and sounded very Presidential.

Not this again. Looking and sounding presidential means squat if you suck at being POTUS period. Some folks thought Trump looked and sounded presidential (I wasn't one of them for sure), and look where our country is now! LOL.

@Sneezy - OK, let's make it Biden-Ocasio-Cortez!

Ocasio-Cortez isn't old enough to be eligible to be Vice President. Try again.

No, there are not. Stop making things up. The Me Too movement would have had a field day with him if he had.

He doesn’t have to, Funny when Hillary was asked to turn over her medical records she didn’t, so the left keep whipping that dead horse.

Hillary and medical records are irrelevant to this discussion. Mr. Biden is. Submitting a tax return has been a standard practice for presidential candidates for almost 50 years. The fact that every president since Nixon has submitted their tax returns but Trump shows that he has something to hide. Mr. Biden and other candidates would not have a problem submitting theirs.

. . . Biden doesn’t have a plane, can’t buy a plane if you’re not successful.*

Not true. There are plenty of people who are successful but don't have planes, or if they do, they don't feel the need to put their name on it. Your "logic" reminds me of Lucy in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where she tells Schroeder that Beethoven couldn't be famous because his picture wasn't on a bubblegum card. However, this is yet another irrelevant point which has nothing to do with running for president.

That’s high and in TV if you are in the top ten, that is winning.

You still cannot admit that you made a mistake. You put forth the falsehood that Trump had the #1 show for 14 years. That was shown to be false. The #7 rating was only hit once during that time which is far from "winning," but go ahead and spin it if you like. It has nothing to do with the article or Mr. Biden.

So again, if Biden wants to run, please go ahead, it’ll be like watching a slow motion NAT Geo kill.

I would prefer if he didn't. The Democrats need a younger candidate with fresher ideas that are relevant and appeal to younger voters.
