Joe Biden has not even officially announced he will be running for president in 2020, but it would appear he should not even waste his time doing so.
Over the last couple of weeks, the support for Biden’s run is waning, with the party clearly leaning towards some of the new blood in the Democrat Party.
Never Could Win
At 76, Joe Biden will not have another chance to put his name on a presidential ticket. While there is some public support for him, the powers that be seem to be steering clear of encouraging Biden to run one more time.
His first crack at the presidency happened in 1987, and it ended just about as quickly as it began. Biden plagiarized a speech written by a British politician and got caught.
The young Democrat admitted to his mistake and his presidential run was cut short. Biden would give it another go in 2007, facing off against Barack Obama.
This was probably his best shot, but he could not get out of his own way, mostly due to his idiotic comments.
The man who would eventually be put on the ticket as the VP characterized his opponent, Barack Obama, as “the first African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
Needless to say, Obama won the nod but he ended up giving Biden the consolation prize of VP.
Time to Move On
The Democrat party has been stuck in the mud for close to a decade now.
Obama’s presidency was supposed to move the party forward, but all it really did was push the Democrat party one step closer to a socialist party.
Biden represents the old-school members of the party, something the younger members are trying to distance themselves from.
That being the case, Senator Kamala Harris has taken on the role of the favorite.
Sorry Joe, but it looks like you will have to sit this one out.
