Democrats finally started to notice they have no chance without Biden.
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisors are desperately asking him to consider pledging just one term serve if he wins his party’s nomination and face off against President Trump.
Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”
His advisers reportedly asked him to consider failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running mate. By doing so, “Biden could appear presumptuous — even imperious — by choosing a running mate before the electorate has the chance to sift the field of candidates.”
By announcing Abrams as his running mate would also pose some major risks to Biden and Abrams such as his support for the infamous Crime Bill.
“The new integration plans being offered are really just quota systems to assure a certain number of blacks, Chicanos, or whatever in each school. That, to me, is the most racist concept you can come up with,” Biden said in that interview. “What it says is, ‘In order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes, and dark skin to be able to learn anything, he needs to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son.’ That’s racist! Who the hell do we think we are, that the only way a black man or woman can learn is if they rub shoulders with my white child?”
“I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation,” Biden said in that interview. “And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”
Biden is still likely to run for president for a third time and formally announce his candidacy.
