Two very old, very wealthy, very corrupt, and very daft white men represent the party of diversity and social justice.

Was watching C-Span this morning and a caller made a very good point.
Biden's "comeback" was based on his primary wins in states that Trump will win in a landslide with a couple of exceptions.
Biden is not expanding his base but rather consolidating the old establishment Democrats.
As stated earlier...Biden is more than likely suffering from early stage dementia . It's scary who will be running this country if he's elected. By January of next year he will probably not know where he is ..much less what his job is.

biden was never meant to run this country.  neither was obama for that matter and in my opinion.  Biden represents the established- the oligarchs, deep state--- the elite.  he is but a front man.. just like every president back to Reagan was.  just like every single multi-elected person in legislation is.... just like reflected in the effort of who is appointed scotus- which is the last stand of our founders intent IF it's not already gone. 

and, quite frankly, none of this matters.  in 2016 the supreme court ruled in favor of the dnc that they can appoint whomever they want to appoint- which takes the implied 'democracy' right out of their name.  my only question about this ruling, which i think is valid, is: "if the entire process can be ignored, why do they get public money to support a democratic process that isn't democratic?" (NOT to be confused with democrat.. democratic and democrat are two far different and opposing things).

Biden had surprise wins in Minnesota and Mass.  That meant something somehow.  You'd think Bernie would be strong in both.

Minnesota does reflect the "traditional midwest Democrats" still though.  Trump could win there.  MA is too urban.

i DO love a good conspiracy, as futz is quick to point out when it benefits him.  

point: the DNC is tallying their own counts. 
point: the DNC is not legally bound to cough up the delegate with most votes as their victor. 
point: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/dnc-argues-in-court-we-dont-owe-anyone-a-fair-primary-process
point: Biden was destined, Bernie is getting screwed, the DNC is rancid with corruption, and the biggest point here- they are practicing, in my opinion, what we're going to encounter in November which is vast fraud (which is something they, in particular, always do- but we're going to see it at a scale never seen before with all of their might focused on one cause which is usurp Trump).

it's unfortunate if that is what you truly believe.  that may be what they call themselves at times in effort to seem 'nice', but there is no such thing as a moderate democrat anymore, and there is zero chance biden is his own man.

I had a couple directors who remind me of Biden.  These folks were nominally in charge of about 120 people.  Some were assertive and some were basically cheerleaders and some didn't really pay much attention that anyone could see.  We had two who were mentally "distant", I'm not sure they were senile really, but the difference was moot.

The worst I ever survived was an Italian dude who was extremely hands on and assertive and made a huge mess of things.  Fortunately, they were in that spot for three years almost like clockwork and this dude was made a VP so he could ruin the work lives of 500 people.  But he was not our VP.

I think it's funny that the same people who decry the DNC nomination process swear there is no voter fraud.  If the Dims will do it to themselves, why wouldn't they do it to the Republicans?

Minnesota is a strong labor state due to the powerful Farm-Labor Party .
They are and always have been strong labor which Bernie has had problems with.

We don't hear much in the news about San Diego which has a Republican as mayor.   Of course they also have urban problems and homelessness.

From what I've seen of it, that would be a city in CA where I could live OK.  I'd prefer to reside in Lake County or thereabouts if I were to live in CA.  I prefer to visit with the money I don't pay to them in taxes.  This is for a modest income in CA.
