Skip to comments.Newsweek: Joe Biden Can Beat Trump in 2020, but Will the Democratic Party Let Him Run? (LOL Alert)

Biden spoke poignantly about [family tragedies] during his recent cross-country book tour. And inevitably, hed be asked about the 2020 election. Thats what happened on a crisp night in November, when almost 2,000 people piled into Washington, D.C.s Warner Theatre. "I havent decided to run," he insisted, but the implication was clear: He hasnt decided not to run.
This wiggle room encourages all those who believe Biden could thump Donald Trump. And he certainly has the résumé: After 36 years in the Senate and two terms in the White House alongside Obama, he knows how to get things done in D.C.from pushing the Clinton administration to get more involved in the Balkans wars in the 90s to spearheading the massive stimulus program under Obama after the 2008 financial crisis. Yet Bidens greatest strength - his experience in the Capitol - could be his greatest weakness for Democrats. With anti-establishment fever still burning all over the country, progressives like Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts seem to be the ones energizing the party.
The former veep might have beaten Trump in 2016, and he might beat him in 2020 - if he gets that far. Biden is well liked by most liberals - he championed the nations first black president and came out for gay marriage ahead of Obama and both Clintons. But compared with Warren and others, he may seem too moderate, too establishment, too white and maybe too old (hes now 75) to mount a bid in 2020. And if he runs, his progressive rivals will pore over a half-century-long paper trail and inevitably find plenty with which to bludgeon him during the primaries.
America may want him to run, but do the Democrats?

A long, boring article that concludes that Slo Joe is remarkably popular because of his impressive credentials ... he has an unvarnished persona that is a large part of his appeal ... that makes him affable and charming ... the 2020 race would be Blue-Collar Uncle Joe vs. the Bullying Billionaire ... and therefore he would be the antidote the Democrats so desperately need ... if only they could swallow it!
LOL we can hope.
Trump would have crazy Uncle Joe whimpering in a corner in the first 5 minutes.
Old shotgun crazy “feel em up” Joe beat Trump for POTUS??????
Where’s that pic of the baby rolling over from laughing so hard?
I want the MadMaxiePad to run against him. She’s more the face and voice of the RAT party. She’d be a winner....LOL. /s
Run, Joe, Run!
His slogan could be “I’m with Stupid.”
The Idiot Biden would have made a better run than Hillary in 2016.
If he runs in 2020, he’s the Designated Loser so they don’t waste a good candidate.
While Biden would run better than HilLIARy or the fake injun squaw, thats like saying it was two degrees above zero today. The SorozNazi buyout has ruined the D party brand.
What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson?
Groping Joe has left and gone away.
We should do our part. Eg. 1) He’s the one we’re worried about. 2) Bernie would have won.
Sexual Pervert Joe? I Hope They do Run Him...LOL
hey hey hey
hey hey hey.
OK guys. Invade the Dem polls and make this idiot and Warren be the poll leaders ROFL
These people are seriously delusional.
Trump could invite some of Joe’s female secret service agents to his campaign events.
After this year’s sexual assault scandal-a-thon, grope-o-matic Uncle Joe doesn’t stand a chance.
New Squeak is at it again!
