As the Democratic primary heats up, Joe Biden, who hasn’t even formally declared yet, is the latest candidate in the hot seat. At issue: his handsiness, which is generally notorious and specifically detailed by Nevada politician Lucy Flores; his moderate policies, which seem painfully out of touch in today’s Democratic party and the promise that his supporters make, which is that he’s the only candidate who can defeat Donald Trump.
One thing is clear. Joe Biden is the wrong candidate for 2020.
While much of the focus of the latest Biden blowup is Flores’s account of him weirdly sniffing her hair and kissing the back of her head, the real story is Biden’s treatment of women in the policy space.
