[Ed. – #Joementum is the new hashtag Democrats have dragged out for this very old politician.]
Democrats once crowed about having the “most diverse field” in presidential history. There were African Americans … women … Latino … gay. …
Now, it is down to Biden and Sanders. The party’s rush to Biden on Super Tuesday was so swift it almost invites rethinking in the days to come. In short: Will there be a Biden hangover?
Yes, Biden was the front-runner in the national Democratic race from the moment he declared until early February; Democratic voters are familiar with his name atop the leader board. But because of the peculiar circumstances of 2019, Biden has not been subjected to the withering, extended scrutiny that being a presidential front-runner can bring. During the impeachment of President Trump, some press accounts seemed to spend more time defending Biden against Republican attacks than delving into his positions or his long public life.
