    He could, he probably deserves to - but he really shouldn't.
    Who on the dem side would win if not him? I agree he is too old though, he's very doddery as it is, never mind after a long campaign vs Trump or RDS.

    I also fully accept that Trump is likely to torpedo his own chances vs almost anyone just by being Trump.

      He should be resting up and enjoying old age. The Dems need to understand they can equally lose credibility . Surely there must be someone else.

        Assuming Kamala Harris isn't the defacto fallback option, who is number 2 to Biden?

          He's fav now. Some move from 7 / 1 + not too long ago.

            He's absolutely walking it against Trump. Possibly walking it against De Santis, but maybe not. I see De Santis has now widened in the odds for Republican nominee. Despite my big bet on him, I do have doubts as to whether he is charismatic enough to win a nomination - even if people will *want* him to be the nominee.

              Mayor Pete if he had any other name I think would be a shoe in.
              People say I should be more humble I hope they understand, they don't listen when you mumble

                Yep no that's definitely the biggest obstacle for him to get voters over there.

                    How are the bbv Chromebooks working out?

                    Mine fell out of my bag and ended up with a cracked screen.

                    Think it might finally be time for a replacement. Looking pretty reasonable <200.

                      I only use it to run meetings, for which it is fine. Couldn't use it for real work but most people could, nice piece of kit.

                        Forget about Trump, he's done. (If you didn't already know this, the Kochs turning their back on him confirms it)

                        So the interesting (and attractively priced) candidates are the putative alternatives to both De Santis and the Prez. I quite like Nikki Haley in that role on the GOP side. Dems...no idea, although the ideal candidate would be a blue Governor in a Red state.

                          Its mad really with those 10,000 dead from an earthquake on our (relative) doorstep - and yet they seem maybe too culturally distant to properly connect. You can see even the news is struggling to keep it at top billing as the story just isn't getting the clicks to justify keeping it up.

                            De Santis is a great GOP candidate on paper. Once you hear him in person, he's pretty meh.

                            Plus his life will be turned upside down and inside out - by people on his own side of the aisle. He looks like a man with secrets.
                            Also, you could throw a vengeful Trump into the mix. Gonna be a fun watch!

                              Planning to double down on my bet on De Santis now it has widened again to around 2/1. Only for the Republican nominee. Think its far more complex to judge the actual winner.

                                Absolutely agree. But with the type of firepower he'll have behind him I suspect he'll be in a situation of everyone wanting him to win, which is a decent starting point. Florida is ecstatic about him, so its not like he can't win elections.

                                  Biden has been a pretty good President, let's not forget. And he's a hell of a lot smarter and tougher than the media portrays him.

                                  If he really wants it, and his health holds up, who would have the balls to take him on?

                                    You think Trump is done in that he won't even get the rep nomination, or just that he hasn't a hope of winning the actual election if he is the nominee?

                                    I mostly agree on the latter, although I'm not totally on board with it, but I think it's fairly safe. In terms of the former I think there is a more than middling chance he will be the rep nominee given how fucked rep politics is over there.

                                      Florida is now solid Red though. And therefore irrelevant in the context of the presidential race.

                                                                Biden usually looks like he doesn't know where he is. But that's probably selection bias.

Didn't think to check the price and seems the meal is going to work out at 200 freakin euro. Great city for food, in fairness to it.

As someone who has worked at the highest level in Washington for decades ('the swamp', durr, durr), he knows how to get shit done. He's quite similar to LBJ in that way. He clearly has an iron grip on the Democrats.

                                                                                                                          By contrast, Trump literally had no idea how government worked. He had power, but no idea how to use it.
