    Well as a Sanders guy, the Sanders campaign has been under the impression that the DNC was just trying to get Biden across the finish line by the convention at which time they'd replace him with a candidate of their choosing (not Sanders) Buttigieg had been mentioned, but now the murmur is Cuomo.

    In all honesty, if it can't be Bernie--I'd love to see Cuomo get the nod.

    How would they do that if Biden passes 1991 delegates to win the nomination?

    He won't the convention will have to go to a vote, what I meant by across the finish line was--getting there with the most delegates, without a plurality and not dying or imploding while he does it.

    Oh, I got you. I mean barring a health crisis, I can’t see him coming up short of 1991 and I can’t see him stepping aside if hits that target.
    In an odd way, this crisis is good for him. The less public events between now and Nov 2, I think the better.

    Thing is, he's live streaming and it's been pretty bad, while Sanders is looking strong. BUT Cuomo, is kicking ass.

    With everything I watch I really do question Biden's health and it's resiliency for the next 4 years should he get elected. he really looks bad at times.

    I gotta say I didn't really follow my governor much before, but he is doing a great job in the circumstances. My understanding of him is everyone has always thought he does his job well, but he has potential baggage, so the rumors say. I always assumed the baggage is why he didn't run. No doubt he is capable of doing the job.

    As long as he owns his shit, I'm ok with him.

    Not that it matters much.

    Biden:

    "I think we've had enough debates"

    Of course he does.

    I think the current president proves baggage is certainly acceptable at this point...maybe even preferred unfortunately.
