Do I recall your hoping for a president who won't upset the apple cart?

You are aware, aren't you, that the apple cart has already been upset and we need strong decisive leadership, progressive leadership, to gather up the apples and set the cart upright again. Joe Biden is not and has never been a strong leader.

I'm not ready to have the country move that far left in my lifetime, although it will happen sooner or later. I don't consider either Sanders or Warren to be a steady, reliable leader. Of course I never considered Trump nor Hillary to be that either, that's why I voted against both.

Actually, I was hoping the democrats would latch onto a fresh young face. Time to pass the baton to the younger generation. But if we're going to stick with 70 plus year old's, then it's Biden for me.

The Democrats must have some up and commers, someone who isn't in their 70's trying to milk a couple of more years out of their political life? 2020 could turn out to be another 1960 if you're old enough to remember. The passing of the torch. It's time for that to happen. If we must elect an ideologue, then let that ideologue be a younger person.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
