Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Ed Rendell says if former Vice President Joe Biden runs against President Trump in 2020 he would "win overwhelmingly." In an interview with New York´s AM 970 radio host John Catsimatidis, Rendell said Biden is the Democrats´ "superstar" and has a real chance of winning in 2020. "There´s only one person I can say who will definitely win the election and has a superstar appeal in almost every state in the union, and that´s Vice President Biden," Rendell said. "Of course, people say he´s too old. But he´s only a year and a half
The Democrats have nothing on the bench except for the old-timers. They need someone who is new. They need new ideas. They are the party of nil ideas. No solutions. They can´t run on anti-Trump rhetoric. 2018 will be the demise of the current Democrat leadership. When they lose this November they´ll be a need for a change for 2020.
Fast Eddie speaks and the world yawns. He had Al Gore as a cinch in 2000, so he´s really a genius. Lunchbox / Middle Class / Groping Joe would be the closest thing to McGovern in electoral losses. Trump would live in his head.
Only Fast Eddy Rendell would want to see that grinning imbecile with the split personality of Karl Childers who acts like the arrogant assistant manager of a used car lot with the personality of a drunken, Tourettes-addled Winnebago man in the White House! Mmmmm Mmmmm them french fried pertaters are a big f__kin deal!
Joe had two brain aneurysms in 1988, one on each side of the brain.(that, in itself, is unusual.)Both aneurysms were surgically repaired, a fact ignored by the media. His odd, goofy behavior is mostly a result of what will turn out to be organic brain disease/disorder. Saying that he is in better shape than the president is absurd.
Uh, no. Biden certainly would have had a better chance of beating Trump in 2016 than the hated Hillary did, but in 2020 his opportunity will have passed, and he´ll be another dinosaur from a bygone era.
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Ed Rendel is just another delusional brain dead moron. In one year PRESIDENT TRUMP has done more for this country than Obama did in 8 freakin years. PRESIDENT TRUMP in one year has exposed Obama and the democratic party for what they are, complete frauds. Got it.
Biden could have won in 2016. Hubris blinded the press and others to the unlikeability of Hillary and its contribution to the subsequent Tsunami for Trump. Democrats are so far left today they see Joe as a right-winger.
#20 absolutely re his 2 brain surgery´s ..I think that a doctor once remarked on it and said that in the area where there was damage that it gives him..no filter... If they do run him..actually,I hope they do..it would be great theatre.POTUS would probably relish the whole thing..there is certainly enough video..to make a hundred great ..ads....
They could run a cardboard cutout of Yogi the Bear against Jesus Himself, and a (D) behind Yogi´s name would give him 40% of the vote. It´s getting those last few percentage points needed to win that is the challenge.
Joe Biden isn´t what they need to get those points. If they´re going to run someone old, the candidate has to at least act youthful, full of energy and ideas.
"Immature", which fits Biden, is not the same as "youthful".
perhaps I remember it ,incorrectly..but in his VP debate with Paul Ryan...he came off as ..unhinged..seriously..and people keep saying how he squashed Ryan...I, honestly thought he was having an..episode..
Biden lacks the air of excitement that our mega star achiever president already has me addicted to. I am so laughing at the liberals who will not do the White house respect thing so the Trumps are free to live the way they are accustomed to at Mar-a-Lago as we see by the New Years Eve party.
How lucky they are that some noisy liberal vows not to attend something so they don´t have to hold it?
The days of adulation of actors and athletes are waning and new heroes are coming to the fore?
Rendell whistling in the dark as America rises to our new challenges? Works for me.

Apple CEO Tim Cook opened up to ABC News after the company announced earlier today that it will be investing $350 billion in the U.S. economy over the next five years, creating more than 20,000 jobs. In a news release, the company also said it would make a $38 billion tax payment to the U.S. as required by recent changes to the tax law. Apple said this would be the largest tax payment of its kind. While Cook would not "take a position" on how the new tax plan is affecting individuals´ taxes, he said $38 billion tax payment would
"Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough questioned President Trump´s weight on a White House physician report, stating if "that´s what 6-3, 239 pounds looks like, that´s a shock to me." The commentary comes one day after Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson concluded the president was in "excellent health" while also sharing that Trump tallied a perfect score on a cognitive test requested by the president. (Snip) The "Morning Joe" hosts have repeatedly called the president´s mental state into question on the program dating back to May, with Scarborough stating that Trump has "early-onset dementia." "We have a president who, Mika and
Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air. All three potential presidential candidates, along with two others, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders
MOSCOW — Even thermometers can´t keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia´s remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday. In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside. In the village of Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, state-owned Russian television showed the mercury falling to the bottom of a
This therapy session between NBA officials and players at All-Star weekend can’t come soon enough. As USA TODAY Sports reported last week, the sustained tension between the league’s referees and so many of its players has become such a concern that they will have a meeting in Los Angeles next month. Saturday night brought more flare-ups, as the Toronto Raptors were incensed at late calls in their loss against the Golden State Warriors. Raptors star DeMar DeRozan said it felt like they were playing “five on eight,” a comment that will likely bring a fine from the league. The Dallas Mavericks’
ATLANTA — They had gathered to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr., but many of those who delivered speeches on the national holiday created to honor the slain civil rights leaders focused their remarks on another man: President Donald Trump. (Snip) Trump has denied saying "anything derogatory" about Haitians, and said he did not use the vulgar language that has been reported. And his weekly address to the nation, released Monday, was dedicated to King. "Dr. King´s dream is our dream, it is the American dream, it´s the promise stitched into the fabric of our nation, etched into the hearts of
WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher. "I don´t see any
Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.
A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up
Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"
Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a
Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
