The last thing Democrats need in 2020 is a white male candidate (Bernie) who would be 79 on taking office. Period. We need a fresh — preferably female — brain to lead the fight to bury Trumpism. The political year of 2016 was jinxed. The last thing we need is another round with Hillary and to be reminded that her husband was an abuser of women too, as we go Round 2 with Trump.
Nor do we need the has-been older Biden. We need a fresh start!
I have nothing against Bernie, Hillary and Joe– but they lost or didn’t run, or divided the party more than they brought it together.
In 2020 we are fighting for our lives. We don’t need loyalty to the past but only to the future. That future must be new.
