17. You said this very well and it is pretty much where I am on this too

 

1) I believe that it and some other awkward moments actually happened.
2) They are inappropriate and - in retrospect - I wonder if Jill Biden or any close aide ever privately spoke to him about this. If they didn't, they should have. If the did, he should have listened and changed this.
3) I agree that he is as far away from a sexual predator.

I also think that he is caught in a change in culture as to what is acceptable. I also remember that several more reserved candidates were compared unfavorably to Bill Clinton, who was more of a "hugger". In fact, many of those people actually did hug people ... but only after pausing to see if it was acceptable. So, to some degree, the media and pundits deserve part of the blame in actually favoring the "hands on" politicians.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
