[Ed. – Whichever way the wind blows on a given day.]
Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner, has embraced two key policies championed by liberal rivals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
The two-term vice president announced Sunday he now supported Sanders’s proposal to make public colleges and universities free for students from families whose combined income is below $125,000. He also adopted Warren’s bankruptcy plan.
“Across the country, middle and working class families are being squeezed by debt,” Biden tweeted. “This primary has brought out our party’s best ideas, and our nation is better for it. If I’m President, I’ll continue to bring the best ideas from all corners of the country and fight to make them reality.”
Biden’s shift to the Left comes as he inches closer to becoming the presumptive nominee. Sanders is his only remaining opponent in the Democratic White House race, but the Vermont senator’s delegate path is becoming mathematically narrower.
