Biden for President

I’ve wavered in my tentative choice for the Democratic nominee between Klobuchar and Warren, but, now that the South Carolina primary results are in, it appears that Joe Biden will be the only serious contender against Bernie Sanders. And since I agree with most informed observers that Biden is significantly more likely to defeat Trump than Sanders, no other issue is worth considering. Beating Trump is all that counts. As Jennifer Rubin noted, “This is not a time for revolution  –- it’s a time for fumigation.”

 If Biden wins, he’ll need a much younger impressive running mate who will help in getting out the biggest vote possible. I’ll start thinking about who that should be after the Super Tuesday results are in, about sixty hours from now, unless it turns out to be useless, because Sanders romped.
