7. He is allowing himself to be used to muddy the waters. To keep focus OFF of Bernie.

Off of Bernie's policy differences from Hillary Clinton.

The media will have an imaginary horse race between Clinton and Biden for as long as they can (and perhaps even longer). It might not allow some people (since most people simply do not pay attention) the time to even THINK about voting for Bernie. NO doubt that's the exact plan.

TPTB will include Biden in polling for as long as possible, and they will NOT point out Biden policies and past actions that might detract from his support or that differ from Bernie (or Hillary).

When the "results" come in from our primaries we might not have too many polls without Biden included. In our day and age of electronic voting that makes things much easier for one particular candidate. Democratic Leadership are certainly creating a primary where no trick will be spared that's for sure.

Shit or get off the pot Biden. It's beyond ridiculous at this point, and our Democratic process deserves much more respect than Party Leaders are giving it during this primary process. Biden doesn't even have to run to help the Establishment. He just has to allow himself to be used to muddy the waters.

And, Bernie supporters every day is important. We have LOTS of educating to do. We're not going to get much help (but we knew that from day 1).
