    Yes, I mean the Starbucks guy.

    Stand behind Biden

    A return to a sense of normalcy? And which other candidates wouldn't provide that? Because last I checked, that happens unless we decide to nominate Howard Schwartz or something. People DO want someone fresh and exciting. Remember when people were like "Anybody But Bush!" That worked out great for John Kerry, didn't it? Oh wait, it didn't. An unpopular President who didn't win the popular vote the first go around, won the popular vote and electoral college the second go around. It wasn't enough not to be George W. Bush. Democrats especially need to be inspired. Remember: Republicans fall in line, Democrats fall in love. We need a candidate we can fall in love with if we want to win. Joe Biden is not that guy.

    Biden doesn't think Republicans are the problem. This isn't something he said 30 years ago -- well it is, during the watergate scandal nonetheless, attacking fellow Dems instead, but it's also something he's said very recently. Do we really want a guy who looks at Mitch McConnell and thinks "That's a guy I can work with?" No thanks. Joe Biden is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He may pretend to be a democrat, but he's more closely allied with Republicans. And I have no idea why Obama chose him as VP.

    Biden is the only hope for beating THE PIG

    As a teacher and a mother, Public Education is my top priority. Education is NOT an issue I will compromise on.

    I don't particularly like Booker either. He's got a Betsy DeVos problem. Yes, he voted against her. But his ideas for schools are very much like her. And he served along side her. Anyone who does not support public education will have trouble getting my support in the primaries. And getting any of my money in the general election.

    So Who Are We Going To Support In 2020?

    Experience is only of any value when all other things are equal. Other things, however, are not equal. Biden doesn't support medicare for all, he doesn't support eliminating student debt or restricting credit card debt. He likes working with Republicans and doesn't think that Mitch McConnell is a problem. Just Trump. (Addison the Turtle is actually worse than Trump). When other things aren't equal, experience is meaningless. I don't think most voters care much about experience in the first place. Barack Obama's 'lack of experience' didn't hurt him, and (sadly) neither did Trump's.

    What does Biden offer that the other candidates don't?

    If the best you have to offer is that Donald Trump is worse, that's a sign your candidate is NOT a good candidate. My dogs are better candidates than Donald Trump. You are NOT going to win voters over this way, and neither is Republican-Lite Joe Biden. I want an actual good candidate. I'm not looking for Perfection. But actually liberal would be a good starting point.

    No thanks to Joe Biden. None of his policies will actually inspire people. All he wants is to keep the status quo. Obama won because he didn't want to keep the status Quo. His whole slogan was "Hope and Change". Biden's whole slogan is "Let's work with Republicans to make sure they can implement their worst policies while not improving things for anyone so credit card companies in Deleware can get rich." (Okay, that's not his actual slogan, but it might as well be)

    I've yet to see any reason I should support Joe Biden other than "He's not Donald Trump!" which is a quality shared by all the other Democratic Candidates, and they have more going for them than that. He's a corporate stooge who supports Republicans over Democrats. If America were anything like the rest of the world, he'd be a right-wing candidate. I'd really have to hold my nose to vote for him, and I voted for Hillary with no problem.

    Joe Biden is in the race

    Oh and (sorry for the doublepost) let's not forget he's against Medicare For All. Why? "It lets Employers off the hook!" Which makes... absolutely no sense. Makes it really hard to support him.

    I'll vote for him in the general, but I really hope he doesn't win the primaries. He's way too far rightwing. Defended Dick Cheney, supported a Republican running for office, and generally is on the wrong side of a lot of issues. Better than Trump? Sure. My pitbulls would be better than Trump, but I wouldn't vote for them in the primary either.

    Warren

    I'll take President Warren any day. (Well, President Elizabeth Warren, not Warren G. Harding for example) But I'm afraid that some people will just never look past the fact she took her parents claims of their native heritage so seriously. They'll knock her for taking some perceived advantage, while at the same time ignoring all of Trump taking advantage of young people seeking education and of bankruptcy laws.

    Next test question for you guys

    The news media isn't liberal in the slightest. It's Corporate. Which leans conservative. While they appear to support Democrats in some cases, that's an instance of them trying to get the best ratings. There's no major news media outlet that's as liberal as Fox News is conservative. If there were a Liberal version of FOX News, you'd have endless stories of how poor people are forced into prison because they can't afford bail while Roger Stone is released on his own recognizance. You'd have stories about ALEC, and constant stories about gun violence and how bad it really is. You'd never hear someone on the network say something along the lines of "This is the day Trump became President". You'd also have stories about how bad wealth inequality has gotten daily. Most media outlets are fairly moderate -- not liberal. They fiscally lean conservative, but socially lean liberal. When people say the media is LIBERAL what they are doing is attempting to move the scale to the right even more. They're taking the proverbial line in the sand and moving 'left-wing' from "Everybody left of George W. Bush" and moving it to "George W. Bush and Leftward". When really Hillary Clinton should be a moderate, but with Conservatives drawing the scales she's far left wing (Making Bernie and AOC really far left wing). This plays to their advantage and allows further right-wing people to claim moderate (which gives them a lot more influence with other moderates) while not allowing moderate dems to claim moderate at all. By dismissing the Moderate Corporate News as liberal, we're letting them draw that line in the sand. Moderate = Liberal. This has, in some ways, backfired as moderate leftists have become more loyal to the Democratic Party (though should we go too far left, they may jump ship). But moderates have moved themselves into the conservative category (despite being on the other side of the line as far as conservatives are concerned) because many moderates prefer 'balance' (Both sides are bad!) to actual issues. That's why conservatives are constantly moving that line back. And the idea that the media is liberal is a big part of how they're doing it. They're defining anything not PURE CONSERVATIVE as Liberal.
