Biden got in bed with arch racist Strom Thurmond to pass the 1994 Crime Bill. The transcript from his speech on the senate floor supporting the bill tells the tale better than I.

Both men have, at least had, similar positions on abortion.

Both men are privileged white men in their seventies.

Jim Crow laws were just about to end when I was born. Donald Trump and Joe Biden were grown men by then, and grew up with those laws. I wonder how many times they have insulted Black People in America during their combined 150 years. I wonder how many times they uttered, and still utter, the "n-word" as white folks like to call it in a pathetic attempt to appease themselves and mute their collective guilt. I can never know, but I do know this: Donald Trump and Joseph Biden, from my standpoint, are two sides of the same coin and there isn't a dimes worth of difference between them.

The song remains the same.

I think the Democrats and msm are going to try and make up some artificial excitement and make it a horse race between Biden and Elizabeth Warren. It will be like the Kentucky Derby and the real winner will be disqualified.

A very likely scenario, Dave. They will play the game, just like they did with Ms. Clinton and Senator Sanders. Biden is a male version of Clinton (for all intents and purposes) and comes from that same political family tree. It makes perfect sense that the democrats will put on a charade of inclusivity, but the fix will already be in. The next U.S. President WILL be white and HE WILL BE MALE because, as I have written supra the same central dynamic is in play.

To plagiarize the senate majority leader "case closed".

This is the same idiocy that got us Donald Trump in the first place, that is, there is no difference between the establishment Democratic candidate and DJT-so don't bother to vote. I am not a fan of Joe Biden but I would certainly vote for him over Trump.

Well, Mr. Cowan, I have been indicted for many things in my life but never an idiot. If it is "idiocy" for me to take umbrage to an individual that insults a group of people that I happen to be a member of and then has the audacity to expect me to vote for him I am guilty as charged. And that applies whether that person is named Clinton, Trump or Biden, all of whom have made such insults. Actually, to expect for me to feel otherwise is not only a reflection of a supremist attitude, it is also illogical and, possibly, psychotic. Thank you for the illuminating comment, nonetheless.
