Joe Biden is the Great White Hope of Moderate Democrats

By Robert Paul Reyes

The new Democratic Party is progressive to the core, all of the Democratic presidential hopefuls have embraced the progressive agenda including Medicare for All and even the pie-in-the-sky Green New Deal.


There are no self-styled moderates in the 2020 Democratic presidential field, even the quintessential moderate, Amy Klobuchar, has adopted the progressive label. If you believe Klobuchar is a progressive, then you probably also believe that she`s the most pleasant boss in the Senate.

The damnable lie that only a moderate Democratic presidential candidate can win in the general election died with Hillary Clinton`s disastrous defeat.

Only a bona fide progressive the likes of a Kamala Harris or a Beto O`Rourke can defeat a populist buffoon like Donald Trump. This is no time for half-measures, it`s incumbent upon the liberal electorate to quickly weed out poseurs and pretenders like Klobuchar. The 2020 presidential race is like a NASCAR race, the Democratic contenders can only turn left, if they veer to the right they will crash and burn.

Joe Biden is the Great White Hope of Democratic moderates, the terminally indecisive Biden has yet to announce he`s running, and hopefully he won`t enter the race.

If Biden does declare his candidacy it`s doomed from the start, he`s too old, too white, too moderate, and he has too much of a liking for prebuscent girls. He would only succeed in drawing away financial resources and media attention away from the eventual winner.

Hopefully Biden will enjoy the 2020 presidential race from the grandstand, he doesn`t` have the stamina or the proper progressive mindset to be a credible contender.
