Wolf, I don't know how old you are but there comes a time in life when we realize that experience and wisdom come with age. In some of the western native American tribes, the young warriors would sit in silence unless spoken to, out of respect for the elders. Still. there also comes a time when people need to realize that they are too old. My dad stopped driving on his own volition. I think this describes Biden, who appears to be just too old. So, when it comes to presidents, we have Trump, Sanders, and Biden. We also have K. Harris, Booker, Beto, so you have your younger candidates. Pretty well rounded about age I'd say.

Very true, but we are saddled with this thing called "electability." The left isn't like the right where the more ideologically extreme you are the greater you are embraced. That's because the Democratic party is made up of all ideologies whereas the Republican party only embraces conservatives and the more extreme the better.

As for talented people I tend to lean towards Pete Buttigieg though I don't think this cycle should be his. I would like to see him in the Senate or Congress where he gets practical experience and after a few years take a run for president again. Perhaps then, many of the old bigots on both sides with have died off or come to the realization of how wrong they are. Anyway, I do think he would, someday, make a great president.

You can duplicate the above for Beto and most of the others. They just need some more seasoning before they will be ready for the big time. A little grey hair isn't all bad.

I kind of agree but they seem to be favoring Biden and like Trump should be put out to pasture

Whats wrong with our country is we don't have enough people in the middle between two factions; the old timers that have learned how to milk the system for personal gain and the young brainwashed college trained revolutionaries that can't understand cause and effect. The level headed honest and ethical people in the middle remain a minority. Age doesn't always conflict with integrity and college doesn't always empty the skulls of coherent thought. How do we achieve the correct balance?

You do not think Pete B. Is extreme? Surely you jest. Where are the pro lifers in the Democrat party? Being against infanticide is the kiss of death in the Democrat party.

Electability means qualified to me. Would you want a president who has no life experience beyond pot smoking?

Probably
But Have You Noticed The Personal Rigors Candidates Go Through ??
Think 'Brett Kavanaugh'
I'm Surprised Anyone Runs For Anything

If These Two Are The Nominees
Then It's Who The People Wanted

Remember
If The Women Candidates Or The Homosexual
Don't Secure Their Party's Nomination
It Was The Constituents Of Their Party ONLY
That Threw Them Over
