Looks like Biden is testing the waters for 2020

This photo-op yesterday sure seems that way. I hope so.

https://www.harpersbazaar...kery-photo/

Barack Obama and Joe Biden's friendship bromance lives on even after their tenures at the White House. Today, the former president and former vice president were spotted visiting a bakery in Washington D.C. together like a couple of regular pals.

The pair stopped by Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown, which provides work for veterans, military spouses, and caregivers, according to the shop's official website.

Seriously? That should prove interesting.

Manuscripted photo op. Look at the shirt, no tie, buttoned same. I would not be surprised if Joe Biden runs. They are going for working class look.

Not a far fetched scenario might be that Biden runs, DNC again rig it against Bernie. Progressives get rightfully pissed. Trump round 2.

Well we've seen exactly what that kind of attitude got us. Folks with that kind of thinking don't need the keys to the car, I'm trying to get somewhere not just spin my wheels. And right now it's to get Trump and anyone like him out that seat And it ain't looking good.

All i know is there are many many folk who are adamant about making sure Trump is re-elected. I wish all limp noodle would move to the back of the bus and squawk all they want. I'm not feeling the same energy about making sure he's not elected. Lots of complaining not a whole lot of action. Talks cheap.

Hmmm.. having been to several rallys and marches in the last two years, I am not feelign the same - maybe it depends on where you live?

Also, last night's super close election in Ohio (less than 2% diff) where Trump won by a margin of 11 18 months ago is an indication that people are coming out to vote and Dems are closing in on traditionally red districts. Of course gerrymandering does not help - but somethig is indeed shifting.

I feel certain things are getting a bigger deal made out of them than they should be based on the overall affect of the next election. I'm suspect of all the "rawraw" I see over every little thing, when I know the Trump supporters are going to turn up in force at the next election, even as they sit silently now.

Not enough landslides in these mid-elections on the Dem side that's making me feel that people are going to turn up to the polls and vote. Rallies don't make elections.

Now you sound like the other Only. neutral

I do not think Trump supporters are sitting silently, do you watch TV? Are you one of them? What is the basis for your blanket statement? - And of course "rallies" do not win anything - but sevreal million people showing up across the country, or the world, to show their discontent raises awareness - and perhaps inspires more like-minded voters or those who didn't vote in 2016 (enter Rodeo) or voters will change their vote or party affilation due to the policies of the current administration.

Again - it depends on where you live. People are being registered to vote at these marches, btw. And as Turmp has proven, you do not need a landslide to win an election.

Don't let linear thinking make you blind. Trump according to media was never supposed to win. Too many people sat home in complacency because they believed what they were watching, That someone else was going to vote. I see the repubs, they rally unconditionally around their candidate. I'm concerned the same thing is taking place again people are being lulled into a false sense that there are plenty of other people to do the job.

Right - some voters stayed home either thinking he would not win or they did not like the alternative - but now the alternative doesn't seem so awful given the last 18 months shitstorm. That will not be the case next time - hopefully - and not all republican voters are rallying behind trump - Trump supporters are rallying behind Trump. He endorsed a candidtae that barely won - this proves A) he does not have a strong influence as he thinks he does and B) People came out and voted for the other guy who almost won a historically red region.

It's shifting....

What a sad, sad situation, where so many people vote not because they think someone has great ideas, vision, integrity, but out of fear. And I’m talking about both sides (even though there are actually more than two sides).

There were media pundits claiming that Hillary should be the nominee as Bernie
being Jewish would isolate many voters and result in the Democrats losing the election.
They claimed that Bernie Sanders being Jewish would be a disadvantage and that is why Hillary should be the nominee instead.

In fact, the democratic party officials were planning to use Bernie Sanders religious beliefs to turn voters against him during the primaries.

https://m.jpost.com/US-El...ils-462317

At issue is a May 5 email leaked Friday by Wikileaks, in which Brad Marshall, the DNC’s chief financial officer, suggested that the party should “get someone to ask” about “his” religious beliefs. “It might [make] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief,” the message says, presumably referring to Kentucky and West Virginia. “Does he believe in a God? He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”

Democrats and Republicans don't actually care about any issues that face oppressed or marginalised groups.
They will use your race, religion, sexuality or gender against you if you are unwilling to serve thier interests.

They did it with Bernie and now Abdul El Sayed.

Democrats not happy about progressive Muslim candidate

I'm wondering what the heck it's got to do with Jewish and Muslim but anything to keep the focus on the fact that liberals aren't voting. Yeah, they're complaining but that's about it.


And as far as 3rd parties, if people are that gunho about is there's a whole Congress to vote in 3rd party candidates, it should be full of them given the talk, but it ain't. Everybody waiting on one seat that swings around every 4 years.
