He has not shown good judgment in foreign policy. He's just as prone to supporting autocratic human-rights abusers who happen to be on the left rather than the right, such as Ortega in Nicaragua, dismissing human-rights violations in Soviet-backed repressive governments everywhere, because he thinks the economic ideology just has to be right.

It's the same when he clung so tightly to the idea that the VA is the perfect form of health-care delivery that he failed to act on serious problems in the system until it became a national outcry.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
