    I'm not a Republican. And there are many threads (daily!) where you can discuss all of that. But I get tired of every damned thread every damned day being hijacked. This thread is about a Biden/Beto ticket. Stick to the topic please.

    Whoever it ends up being, they have to be able to inspire a critical mass of Democrats and motivate them to go to the polls. Otherwise, Trump will be re-elected.

    It can't be a "I'm not Trump, so vote for me" focused campaign. Such an approach will lose the election.
    If you have to resort to insults, name calling, ad hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, appeals to authority, and other dirty debate tactics, the veracity of you argument is questionable.

    That was no actual challenge, it was your normal bait and switch method of derailing a thread.

    Face it by the standards you have set, trump is a criminal...

    Too bad, people should vote as a civic duty, they're too used to mommy sticking doggie treats in their mouth to make it around the arena for first in show.

    Why should I expect you to energize me to do my civic duty?

    You aren't able to defend Pendejo O'Rourke. It's that simple.

    No need to be has no record, what am I supposed to defend him against, news clippings?

    Anyway the conversation is not about guilt or innocence of anyone, it is about electability.

    I believe Biden would be as sure of a thing as there could be.

    I just think that O'Rourke can fire up young voters, and no one cares about a twenty year old news clipping.

    In this thread there have many alternatives put forth that would be just as viable.

    But in the end a New York sewer rat has less baggage and more credibility than trump and could easily win over trump...

    Here's some more on his electability:

    This dude's cut from the same cloth as Dylan Roof.

    Yes, you recently changed your lean from republican or conservative, and have never spoken of trump’s crimes, fraud or corruption except to mock democrats for speaking of those things. If I recall, you once had the backbone to say you disapproved of his personality.

    I don’t know who you’re fooling, but it’s not me.

    I agree, look at past Dem primaries. Quite often the early front runner fades fast. It may be fun speculating, but we're way to far out to start claiming who'll be more electable right now...

    You nailed it again. Can you imaging comparing the racist crook to ANYONE?!? Far too many moderates, independents and women who had no idea what kind of man he is the first time around, won't be making the same mistake.

    I'm going to love seeing The Cult becoming desperate as more and more of Trump's past crimes are revealed. The winner will be able to quickly reverse many of Trump's hateful policies. Many others will take a long time and many will need control of all three branches to completely heal ourselves...
