2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

Democrats consider run by gaffe-prone Joe Biden?



Dr. Jill Biden "not sold on potential Biden run?"
Well, the Huffington Post headline tells us, “Jill Not Sold On Potential Biden Run.” The reasons the article gives avoid one of Joe’s weaknesses that perhaps his wife knows better than anyone else. The article mentions the grief the family is experiencing in the aftermath of Beau Biden’s death as a major source of Jill’s resistance to Joe’s candidacy in 2016. Could be, though, the thought of her gaffe-prone husband being elected president makes her a little nervous; as well it should.

As President Obama hinted in his introductory remarks in March 2010 at Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria, Virginia, Vice President Biden could be a problem now and then:  Introduced by Dr. Jill Biden, the vice president's wife, Obama said, "Thank you Dr. Biden for that outstanding introduction, and for putting up with Joe"

You have to wonder how many heads of state would be as gracious as Jill in putting up with Joe Biden’s unfortunate gaffes.

But then anti-Hillary Democrats are becoming increasingly desperate in their search for a candidate to oppose Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary. The politically inexperienced Elizabeth Warren has enough common sense to refuse to run; Socialist maverick Bernie Sanders would have to lunge even farther to the center than Obama did in order to get elected; and Joe Biden, most well known for his gaffes, would likely embarrass the Dems or more accurately, the Dims, even before his nomination.

It’s time for the Democratic Party to get its act together and throw its full support behind its most experienced, politically savvy, and authentic candidate  – what you see is what you get with Hillary.
