209. I can't follow your logic at all...

 

...so let me tell you that I always support a Democrat. I was a die hard Hillary Supporter in the primary in 2008 and 2016. I think Hillary was the most qualified person to ever run for President. I think she has been a victim almost all of her political life, and never complained. That includes how her Husband treated her, how the government treated her, how America's foreign enemies treated her, how her friends treated her, how her party treated her and how her fellow white women treated her in 2016. There is no one, including Barack Obama, who I admire more in politics than Hillary. I have defended her, worked for her, donated to her and it is my opinion that America did itself a great disservice in not electing Hillary as President.

I worked for and supported Warren for Senate, twice. I was a delegate to the state convention as committed to Warren. I ran house parties and spoke in behalf of Katherine Clark for Congress, both in the primary and election against a male opponent in both of those races. I think a woman should be President and that's why I supported Hillary...twice. But here's what I know absolutely, for sure, this country cannot survive the re-election of Donald Trump. The polls show that Biden is the strongest candidate in the General Election against Trump. Not by a little bit, but by a mile. Bernie comes close, but no one does better in every swing state than Biden.

In this Democracy they will not allow me to appoint the next President, he or she has to be elected. If the polls change. If the General Election matchups show Harris or Warren or anyone else carrying two of these five states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin and Michigan and that candidate also holding all of Hillary's 2016 states and Biden can't, I'll change my mind. This election is too important for anyone who loves this country to be rigidly wedded to any one candidate or any particular issue or ideology.

I'm a full blooded Italian-American, so let me quote another Italian-American when summarizing the 2020 General Election, "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
