    No surprise here...

    Comcast executive to host Joe Biden fundraiser

    Unlike many of his competitors, Biden is courting some of the party's traditional high-dollar donors to support his campaign, which is evident from the invitation to the fundraiser, obtained by CBS Philadelphia. The Cohens, along with cohosts who include top lobbyists and lawyers in Pennsylvania, are seeking donations of at least $2,800 to attend the fundraiser

    "Everyone is treated with dignity" says Joe! "Hate is given no safe harbor" says Joe. "WE can't forget what happened in Charlottesville" says Joe. "It's who we are" says Joe.

    "This is America!" says Joe.

    It's forgotten for a reason. Several actually. Ironically all having to do with politics.

    That said - most voters will vote for Biden because of his likability - not his policies.

    They will NOT vote for the others - because of their policies.

    so you are saying there are no other likable candidates running for the nom?

    assuming he makes it to the debates, i think the effects of his age will become very evident in comparison to the other candidates. same thing with bernie.

    Put another way - I think he is the most likeable candidate overall.

    I look forward to the debates and feel with Biden in now - they will be much more enjoyable (watchable).

    he certainly is "likable". but he is also looking fairly frail and old and campaigning can take its toll.

    i think that with the field that is currently there, the debates will be substantive and watchable - in addition to being a stark contrast to the slow motion trainwreck that is the gop - regardless of whether or not biden is in.

    Yeah yeah but....the REAL fun starts when we get into the presidential debates - assuming the president does run for re-election, which seems more and more likely every day - although I still have some doubt. Nevertheless, if he's in it - we're in for some entertainment of the highest order!

    we are already being "entertained" at the highest order by the 24-7 reality show that y'all voted in. i'll pass on the entertainment aspect.

    From the Dems who are running, I'm not sure I see someone who can beat Ol Bonespurs. I'll vote for anyone but him, but no Dem candidate yet gets me excited.

    I find Biden likable in a crazy uncle kind of way. Not at all in a I want that dude to be president kind of way. But maybe I'm in the minority.
