    Mainly because there were a lot of Democrats who really didn't want Hillary.

    And there are a *lot* who really don't want Biden. Not to mention rigging the process in favor of a human powder keg makes no sense.

    Yeah, I think they see him too much as "the old guard", and realize that's going to be the perception of the general electorate --- "he's an old white guy".
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Oh, I'm not saying that the party machine will have zero impact, but it can only do so much. Hillary was a pretty popular candidate in her own right - my aunt thinks she practically walks on water.

    I think they have a lousy field and a worse process. The results are unlikely to be pretty.

    Normally, I'd say yep - but they've got such a horribly unlikable field that even Biden may not be able to shoot off his own foot (I saw the comic already ).

    Biden has an unparalleled ability of both putting his foot in his mouth as well as shooting himself in the foot. I believe that sooner or later these two traits will coincide and he'll shoot himself in the foot while it's firmly ensconced in his mouth leading to his self-destruction.

    No argument - question is, will it be during the primaries or the general?

    Biden is 77 now. If you think he has a tendency for gaffes now, imagine him at age 86.
