55. Everyone remembers Barack Obama. That's why.

 

He started out as a virtual unknown, and ended up on top. Everyone wants to be Barack Obama in 2018.

That's why so many people whose names nobody knows are running. There's just one problem: They're not Barack Obama.

Nobody is. They're not Bill Clinton, either, or even Jimmy Carter. All of those people came from the bottom of the pack and rose to the top. But, they had something going on about them, and ran at just the right time.

Right now, we have Donald Jerkoff Trump in the White House. Anyone with any sense at all wants him gone. They're not looking for that magical unknown candidate to get that job done. That's why Joe Biden moved to the top as soon as he declared his candidacy. Not only is he well-known and well-liked, he was Barack Obama's VP for eight years. He's the guy Barack Obama hung the Presidential Medal of Freedom on and praised so highly.

This is not one of those years when an unknown is going to surprise us by being the nominee. Not a chance. Democrats want a sure thing. They want Trump gone and they'll show up and vote like their lives depended on it, which they do, maybe.

Barring some unseen disaster, Joe Biden will be the nominee. He might have a little competition from Bernie Sanders and maybe one other person, but in most states, they won't get the 15% of primary votes needed to win delegates.

Unless something really unexpected happens, that's what will probably happen. Then, in November of 2020, we're going to see an unprecedented turnout of Democrats who are hell-bent on kicking Trump out of the White House.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
