    Default After excruciatingly long period of unofficial campaigning, Biden announced

    Joe Biden is taking one more shot at the presidency.

    On Thursday morning, after an excruciatingly long period of unofficial campaigning, Biden announced in a video that he would run for president in 2020, joining an already-crowded field of 20 Democratic candidates.

    For months, Biden has lurked in the background of the early campaign cycle, sitting close to the top of nearly every national poll even without a formal announcement that he was running, jockeying for the frontrunner title with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    Biden’s presence in the race, however, gives the Democratic primary a clear option that it did not have before: making no progress whatsoever.

    Concrete rumors of Biden’s announcement leaked on April 19 in a report in the Atlantic, in which anonymous staffers dished that the former Vice President thought that a firmly centrist campaign would be a shoe-in for the nomination. Biden’s campaign represents a clear chance for the Democratic Party to remain firmly rooted in the past. The problem is, didn’t we just try that?

    Biden will undoubtedly run on a platform emphasizing his long, long career in national politics. It’s true: Biden has served in multiple executive and legislative offices, and is certainly qualified to serve as president by almost any traditional metric. The problem, of course, is that much of that long career was spent advancing firmly centrist or even conservative policies like ending desegregation busing, aggressive crime bills and voting for the Iraq War.

    To top it all off, other campaign insiders report that the entire venture is a complete clusterfuck.

    Per Time magazine:

    “I’ve never seen anything so half-assed,” a former Biden aide said. “They’re improvising and doing last-minute planning. The guy has been running for President since 1987 and can’t figure the basics out, like where to stand on his first day? This should make everyone very nervous.”
    Biden is—like every Democratic candidate—preferable to Trump. But if the Democratic Party is at all interested in moving itself and the country forward, we won’t even get close to having to choose between the two.

    Truly though what does it matter who is president? Same shit, different name. Politicians are nothing more than big mouths with holes in their pockets and only 1% of what they say is true. Food for thought.

    Joe Biden is Obama without hope
    https://spectator.us/joe-biden-obama-without-hope/

    The danger for Trump is that he may now be seen as a representative of the very thing he campaigned against in 2016.
    That was the danger for Obama in 2012 as well, but he got lucky in that the Republicans nominated a ticket that was even more of a throwback than Obama had by then proved to be. Biden plausibly sees his greatest strength in 2020 as his connection to Obama. But the Obama record is yet another of Biden’s burdens.
    Sen. Biden is someone Democrats would never imagine nominating in 2020, just as they didn’t nominate him in 2008 or 1988. But Vice President Biden, heir to Obama? If they stop to think about what that means,

    Democrats may have doubts about him, too. Heir to what, exactly — to sluggish economic growth and higher rates of black employment than under President Trump? Heir to broken promises to close the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay? Heir in foreign policy to the US withdrawal from Iraq or to the failure to end the war in Afghanistan? Heir to the Libyan intervention?

    Obama’s foreign-policy record is objectively worse by any measure than Donald Trump’s, just as his economic performance is.

    Even in the culture war, Obama led from behind, leaving a Republican-dominated Supreme Court to legalize same-sex marriage for the whole country. Conservatives, of course, find nothing to like about the Obama record. But take Obama himself out of the picture, and progressives too will find little to like, if they’re honest. That’s the record Joe Biden has to run on, if he doesn’t run on his own record as a senator, which is worse.

    Donald Trump at this point has a strong economic record — low unemployment, rising wages, lower taxes for everyone — coupled with a less disastrous foreign-policy record than either George W. Bush or Barack Obama. That may yet change: the economy could fall into recession, or Trump could add one neocon too many to his administration and find himself at war in some sinkhole country that swallows American lives and honor to no purpose other than the slaughter of the very innocents we purport to liberate. The more Trump comes to resemble another Bush, the better the chance that any Democrat will beat him. Even Joe Biden.

    But if Trump’s record next year still resembles his record as of now, Democrats won’t beat him with nostalgia for the Obama years — with an almost octogenarian white guy instead of Obama at the head of the ticket. Biden has none of Obama’s charm or historic significance; just the opposite. And the Obama record without Obama is a pitiful thing.
