By Mark Tracey Both candidates have baggage, Sanders is not a Democrat but a Socialist and will not have strong appeal to the more centrist mainstream voters. Biden is clearly borderline senile and would clearly only be a figurehead President if elected. There will be a brokered convention and the Democrats will pull a dark horse canidate out of their bag of tricks, most likely a women, and foil both Sanders and Biden. The only path forward for Biden is to announce a strong, competent Vice Presidential running mate before the convention. Sanders has no chance, and his followers will be a very disruptive force at and after the convention.

By Mark Tracey I don’t believe I expressed a preference for either Biden or Sanders. As of today, Biden has the old guard of the party supporting him and pushing him forward. Biden will be the figurehead candidate. Sanders followers is come unglued at Bernies second manipulated loss of the candidacy and will split the Democrat party and not vote for Biden.
