I think it’s very appropriate to call the Democratic run for presidency a roller coaster so far. Just looking at my posts from the past few months is a good example. Not even a month ago I posted Biden out, Bloomberg in? because Joe Biden’s campaign appeared to be on its last leg after he lost in Iowa. The day after the Iowa primaries Michael Bloomberg had TV ads showcasing his relationship with Barack Obama and this morning, after Super Tuesday results, Bloomberg is out of the race.
Just yesterday I saw a new TV commercial using a clip of Obama praising Biden, although Obama has yet to endorse any candidate.
Biden is gaining momentum even after all his worrisome gaffs in public speeches and on the debate stage. Even last night he confused his wife and his sister.
The more I think about it, the more I’m losing faith in the American people. I mean, if you can admit that he’s had mental stumbles, but can’t admit it’s something more than accidental slip-ups, and STILL choose him for the nominee… maybe something isn’t wrong with him, something is wrong with you. 🙂
In his own words Biden said about picking a Vice President, “he’s capable of immediately being a president because I’m an old guy,” which means that he’s admitting he could die during his presidency! That would concern me a great deal if I was a supporter.
Somehow, though, Biden is gaining traction day in and day out. Bernie Sanders would give Trump a stronger challenge if the demographic he appeals to (young people) would be motivated enough to actually get off the couch and go vote.
I suspect the roller coaster is just getting started which means we have lots of twists and turns and loops and twirly-do’s to come. After all, some think Hillary Clinton is still waiting in the wings. She’s appearing on late night TV tonight so that will be interesting to watch. I’ll be listening for any indicators that she has her eye on disrupting the process by adding her name as a nominee which is very possible if this turns into a contested convention.
Thanks for stopping by!
