Bernie has the energy of a four-year-old after loading up on a pound of sugar. Mentally he's also quite sharp, it's quite impressive really. Biden is definitely in Zombie land.
I vividly remember watching the vice-presidential debate in 2012 and recalled it reading your post as, to me, 2012 appears to have been a missed opportunity. During the debate and in closing remarks, Mr. Paul Ryan gave what could be considered incomplete answers but the answers contained seeds of reform. In the same remarks, Mr. Joe Biden offered peace of mind.

After listening to the conclusion, I wondered: "How can you win an election with such a Zombie answer?"
Conclusion: I have poor ability to predict election results. But sometimes zombies win.

Indeed. The silent majority not participating in CoBF still has a say in things.

Bernie's a fired up socialist, Biden's always in his own head thinking about little girls.
And how poor kids compare to white kids.

He may be a "democratic socialist" but you have to admire that he actually gets out there on the streets:

I'll criticize his ideas all day long, but I have nothing negative to say about his enthusiasm.  Especially at his age.  Too bad he's so wrong.

I'd agree with his criticisms but I'd say he's about 50/50 in terms of realistic solutions. His "wall street trading tax" for example is simply unrealistic. But, actually enforcing our tax law on the wealthiest corporations and individuals is a good idea.

I know this got some publicity, but just imagine if Trump had recently said this.  Do you think there is a chance in hell that you wouldn't have heard about it?  Biden is the Dan Quayle of the Democratic party and the press just never mentions it.  Do some searching for dumb Biden quotes, you can read all day.

Yeah, but don't overlook the entertainment value :)

Yes, there is always that.  :)

Although I find Trump more amusing, because he make the press go ballistic, whereas the press ignores anything Biden says and does, and pretends they didn't hear or see it.  "Nope I didn't hear another racist comment or see him with his hands all over a little girl...."

If a president says something crazy and no one reports it, is it even entertaining?
