    So, Bob Iger just unexpectedly stepped down as CEO from Disney yesterday. That's the "business man" the Democrats needed in the race. Dude is brilliant and beyond engaging when you hear him speak.

    Biden is the Democratic version of Bob Dole and John McCain. However, Trump is so bad, that an uninspired candidate like Biden who is at least a decade past his political prime may be enough.

    Dems had over 3 years to put together a plan and find a candidate to beat an extremely polarizing Trump and it comes down to Sanders or Biden. Ugh.

    I used to liken Biden more to Mitt Romney, but Dole and McCain are pretty good comps too.

    Dole is probably the best. The Maverick still had some fiestyness.

    Agree with a lot of this. I think a good portion of the country wants a new option besides Trump.

    It doesn't have to be the best candidate just someone who they can accept. Biden fits this description.

    It's from Amnesty International. So Malta would be the minor western nation on the list, if we're counting them as western. Again it's per capita (Canada is apparently re-settling the most asylum-seekers, but per capita seems like a more relevant measure for social services).

    he is crazy.
    You would think that at some point he would stop going after the DNC and the Democratic establishment and go after Trump and the GOP but no...

    McSally is already running ads in AZ pinning Bernie to Mark Kelly by claiming Kelly stated he would support Bernie.
