The end of the republican party is the best thing that can happen to America. I think this is evidence that the party is now tipping over into the abyss of history.

This IS THE TIME for the dem party to take over the government and represent the people.
This is the time for the dem party to be stating at least a slight indication of a game plan so the people knows where it stands.

But reality IS capitalist corporations rule this country. The dems are mostly silent on anything they might do for the middle class that would offend the corporations and capitalist donors who are and will be paying to get them in front of the news NOW & leading up to the election.

Biden wants to gain favor by going light on the capitalist corporations and is therefore ignoring the middle class that he could champion.
Instead of stepping up to the challenge he is try to back BUTT FIRST into the presidency. It has never happened before------not likely now------ unless miracles do happen.

What does Biden plan to do (different)???????
What does Biden stand for or believe in??????
Never mind all of that --------first & foremost he is searching for a running mate!

Biden if you have any sense at all come in out of the RAIN-----you damn loser ----
opportunity is here & where the hell are YOU????????

I don't have a vote - I live on the same continent but.... oh well it is what it is. Biden would NOT have been someone I'd have chosen for the job - I think one of the younger guys or one of the younger women could/would do a better job. However, considering Biden's age etc. I think he needs to pick a very energetic black woman... and then when they vote again in 2024 - I'd like to see two women on the ticket.

Better yet... 4 women... men have been screwing the masses for a hundred years - better governance with women at the helm.

SEWG you do make a great point there. Women may be better leaders. I have been thinking that for 6 months now.

Other than Clinton who was corrupt with the Clinton Foundation-------I think It would be more difficult for the corporate capitalists to corrupt women.
Men are more prone to cronyism with less concern about what others think about them.

You ask a question a lot of people are also pondering. Biden was not my preference for the nomination and you point out, essentially, why I suppose. I just didn't feel he was the right person to move the country forward. However, the dynamics has changed. What America needs, desperately, is a healer. Not only for ourselves, but for the world too. Now is not the time to move the nation forward. When 38 million Americans suddenly find themselves out of work, and perhaps sick on top of it I don't think the time will ever be better to set the stage for bold progressive reform. Biden, I believe, will RACE through that door if he wins and the Democrats take the senate. That, will heal the world...and cement his place as an historic president.

The worry is how much more damage will Trump do...and it will be a lot. Toss in an out of control pandemic and you have to come to terms with reality... the America you know will be dead...and we both know there is no cure for that.

I absolutely LOVE your idea.

Healing America isn't moving the nation forward even if the prescription for doing so embraces bold change. But the reality of the unemployment and pandemic threat needs to be looked at in terms of the economic structural change that was already accelerating. I'm talking about the collapse of the retail industry, the damage Trump's trade war is doing and the burden of student debt that all plague an economy driven by consumer spending. The move to 15 dollars an hour was one way to further the ride but artificial intelligence and robotics are about to turn the world upside down as well. Healing will have to be creative. Did you ever expect to pay 1.58 for a gallon of gas again? I sure didn't but governments are growing desperate now and obviously this desperation is now walking the halls of congress.

Biden's mission will not be as the innovator himself, but rather he will allow the innovation. That's what will make him historic. Biden will heal relationships. He will give enough to get and that political calculation will force obstructionists to the sidelines. Healing will come first of course. Presidential empathy will win over the masses who are exhausted from the fight. The new 'fight' will really be a race instead...for great ideas and innovative thinking that won't be greeted as "Dead on Arrival" by legislators. A Biden win will signal to the world that the Trump chapter of every man for himself is over. That's when we all win....

As for a presidential race of all women that would be a dream come true....as long as it doesn't include that shrill voice of Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee or Sarah Huckabee Sanders....OMG Sewg, what have you done to me? LOL
