20. he's supposed to be staying in, and I'm not surprised

 

I do not have a problem with him staying in, allowing a debate, and allowing more people to vote.

However, I was pretty offended last night when Rachel Maddow said something to the effect of that Biden cannot "go to war" with Bernie's supporters. I do not foresee Biden being anything but gracious. I think that the big elephant in the room for me is that many of Bernie's supporters seem absolutely hell bent on going scorched earth, and that we just had a weekend in which Bernie's prominent media supporters, amplified by some campaign surrogates, implied that Biden was senile and in hiding. Biden should reach out to Bernie's supporters, but I just think that the Krystal Balls and the Ryan Grimms were never honest brokers, and were always going to refuse to vote for anyone but Bernie, even if Elizabeth Warren was the nominee. I think that we are going to have to work with AOC, who at least seems to have better political instincts than most on Bernie's campaign staff.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
