Is it a coincidence that front runners Biden and Beto have both delayed announcing they are running?

Though they have not yet announced they are running for President they are both in the early states of Ohio and Iowa this week. I expect (and hope) they make a joint announcement this month while in those early states. Biden announcing he is running. Beto announcing he is NOT running because Biden has asked him to be on the ticket as his VP when Biden wins the nomination.

That ticket would beat Trump in the general election and would scare the shit out of Trump. It might even cause Trump to drop out of the race (for health reasons).

During the campaign Biden would stress that he would only run for one term. But he would have Beto as his partner and a fantastic pool of other primary candidates from which to select cabinet positions and other top jobs. That would guarantee a united Democratic Party for the general election.

That would accomplish the number one priority of Democrats - beat Trump and get him out of the Presidency. Polls seem to show that the public attitude is changing. On questions about what issues are important to them, a high percentage are including as one of thir top issues is having a President with character, integrity, and honesty.

We could again have country that we are proud of.

Trump is in the precess of making the longest speech of his Presidency at the CPAC.

He has been talking for over 2 hours and is still going. Does that scare the GOP?

Biden team discussed 2020 run with O'Rourke as VP: report

Source: Associated Press

Advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden have reportedly floated the idea of him teaming up with a younger running mate if he ran for president in 2020, including potentially Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

The Associated Press, citing people speaking on the condition of anonymity, reported the scenario Friday while noting that current and past advisers have discussed having Biden team up with a younger running mate to alleviate concerns about his age.

Biden would be 77 years old on Election Day in 2020 and would be the oldest president ever elected if he won. He has said he is considering launching another White House bid to take on Trump in two years, and is expected to face a crowded Democratic field.

There are a bunch of prospective Dem candidates that would make a Great President. But they will have a fight to win the nomination with such a large field wanting to run (20+) That kind of fight would likely cause some splits in the Dem Party. . With Biden at the top of ticket a bunch of those potential candidates would drop out and support Biden. Beto on the ticket would eliminate concerns about Biden's age and add some vigor and excitement to the ticket. If Biden acknowledges the quality of those wanting to run and announce he would want those new faces in his cabinet and other high government positions we would go into the 2020 campaign as a united party.

I agree with what Biden said when he said he was the most qualified person in the country to be President. He has the experience to know how to govern. He would be mentoring and teaching all those new faces that he brought into his administration. The Democratic Party would be stronger in the years ahead.
