Good to see someone on Medium writing a critical assessment of Biden's poor quality as candidate material, and highlighting those aspects of the Democrat promaries process that need in depth explanation.

Even leaving aside his alleged (but blatantly obvious to unbiased observers,) congitive decline, his lack of personal appean and his wandering hands, Biden's age alone should rule him out as a serious contender. And to head off cooments that Bernie Sanders is about the same age, in my opinion some of the failings of Sanders' campaingns in 2016 and 2020 may well have been because he never really wanted to be president. Bernie has been a Senator for a long time, he knows how the system works and is surely aware of how presidents are manipulated by the top civil servants, are subjected to pressures from corportate lobbyists and are only nominally in charge of the administration.

Have to admit I didn't real all the article, it's rather long and neither the US Presidency nor the Democrats nomination process are my war to fight in. But as I say it was good to see a critical analysis of the situation rather than another sycophantic spiel proclaiming Joe Biden the perfect candidate.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
