    If not Joe in ‘24, then who?

    David Byler (Washington Post) had an interesting take in the 0Jan. 16 paper. (“Dems still don't want Joe in 2024.“) He stated, “Biden prevailed against a deep, talented, experienced field” in 2020. Well, let us take stock.

    June 16, 2019: Of over 20 primary candidates, most polled in single digits with 13 below 1%. Only far left Warren and Sanders polled at half of Biden’s 31% and the machine knew neither could unseat Trump no matter how many times he shot himself in the foot. VP Harris with her then 8% now channels Hubert Humphrey with her not so eloquent speaking while saying nothing.

    I would submit that taking the same 20 plus or similar 2019 candidates, none would prove to be "talented and experienced" enough to beat old Joe if there were another primary. So, if not Biden in 2024 who?
