    I've been saying this for months and everybody seems to ignore me. I love this paragraph from the Hot Air blog:

    On one hand, Democrats have a scandal-tainted former presidential also-ran whom voters don’t trust. On the other, they have a 74-year-old self-proclaimed socialist who may drown all of their down-ballot candidates attempting to take seats away from Republicans without having a prayer of getting to the White House. What other options do Democrats have? Some are demanding that Vice President Joe Biden get sent to the bullpen to warm up (via Jim Geraghty):

    Odd that right wingers are the only ones who ever bring that up. Makes you look like you're scared of Hillary or Bernie.

    Hillary will end up being indicted and forced out of the race.
    Bernie will flame out or scare the DNC so much they'll be forced to disown him.

    You got a magic crystal ball that tells you that, or did you just pull that out of your butt?

    If you bother to open your eyes and pay attention to the news from more than just the Lame Street Media you would see that is the opinion of a huge sector of political junkies - and pundits.

    You got a link to ANY Democrat who said that since Biden made it clear he wasn't interested?

    Sigh. I will make it a point when I go through my RSS feeds tomorrow to find a few links to support the supposition.

    I doubt he'll jump into the race, but I'm surprised he chose not to run in the first place. Policies aside, nobody can deny he has much less baggage than Clinton, and is a much more likable person. People might say he's a little dopey at times, but he's certainly not a dumb guy.
