[Ed. – Take one for the team? He’d rather fight … with prospective voters.]
Dismal results in Iowa and New Hampshire didn’t cause Joe Biden’s presidential campaign to become untenable, they only confirmed it. Many of us who watched him at close range on the trail saw it coming months ago. …
Biden, who has served his country honorably, must now demonstrate — again — what a truly good man he is. Rather than cling to hope of a recovery in Nevada on Feb. 22 or South Carolina on Feb. 29, he should withdraw now to smooth the process for his fellow Democrats seeking the best candidate to defeat President Donald Trump.
Even after finishing fourth in Iowa and running fifth in the New Hampshire vote count, Biden’s name recognition keeps him at or toward the top in national polls. Why would any candidate with a legitimate shot at being president quit the race?
It would have to be an exceptional act of patriotism.
