5 Reasons Why Joe Biden Would Make a Fantastic President

Are you ready? (AP)

The Joe Biden presidential campaign has, for all intents and purposes, already begun. With President Obama having abdicated his Veterans Day duties in order to attend a dictator summit in Communist China, Biden stepped up to the plate on Tuesday by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

Because the 2014 midterms were terrible for potential Biden challenger Hillary Clinton, and because the chances of President Obama resigning before the new GOP-controlled Senate takes office in January are high, the veep is strongly positioned to lead the Democratic Party into the future.

Here are the top 5 reasons why Joe Biden would make a fantastic president:

You Won’t Believe How Old the Democratic Party’s Leaders Really Are

Sonny has already explained why millennial voters are woefully uniformed and probably should not vote. For example, most of them think Hillary is in her 50s or younger. (She just turned 67.)

Millennials would presumably be shocked to find out the true age of the Democratic Party’s leaders. In the interest of public service and transparency, it is the Free Beacon’s solemn obligation to remind them. Here’s a rundown of top Democratic leaders, and how old they will be in 2016:

What Obama Can Teach Republicans About Discussing Climate Change

The midterms didn’t go so well for Tom Steyer, the environmentalist billionaire who spent millions in an effort to make climate change a winning issue. Steyer’s failure can be summed up by the fact that in the final days of the election, his Super PAC was funding bizarre ads accusing Republicans of wanting to ban condoms.

Most Americans do not think “dealing with climate change” should be a governmental priority—a 2014 Pew survey found that it ranked 19th out of 20 issues tested, behind “reducing the influence of lobbyists” and “dealing with moral breakdown.” It is likely to stay that way heading into the 2016 presidential race.

The 2014 election was a disaster for Hillary Clinton. Why? Let us count the ways.

She will have to run against an energetic and motivated Republican Party. If the GOP had failed to capture the Senate, the loss would have been more than demoralizing. It would have led to serious discussion of a third party. Donors would have reconsidered whether their spending was worth the reputational cost. Candidate recruitment efforts would have stalled. Republican voters would have asked why they bother to show up. The Republican circular firing squad, always a problem, wouldn’t use conventional weapons. They’d use ICBMs.

Hillary’s Losers

Losers.

Hillary Clinton wasn’t on the ballot this year, but all of the candidates she’d campaigned for were, and they suffered some of the most embarrassing defeats of the cycle. Even MSNBC agrees that it was a bad night for Clinton.
