4. Biden's fine, but there's a lot of delusion in these polls that's worrisome.

 

I've had the misfortune to live most of my life in conservative communities. Not planned, just happened. If I had it to do over again, we wouldn't have left West Hollywood until we moved to the PNW.

There's a great deal of distrust of Elizabeth Warren among moderate conservatives -- the ones we need to draw from. I believe she could overcome some of it with more exposure, but the right would be working to turn the distrust into a chasm and casting her as epitomizing everything they fear about the far left. I like a lot about her, but I do not expect to be able to vote for her and hope she will become an important part of our next government in a different powerful position.

As for Sanders, he IS what conservatives fear and despise in the far left. No misunderstanding. And what swiftboaters would do with the material in his background would make their scrabbling to create a scandal our of a home server look like a pathetic joke. In the real world, in the real existential election coming up, he'd drive the wobblies to the polls to vote against him.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
