I have a habit of reading the last few pages of novels, so I won’t waste my time building towards a disappointment. This Election 2020 Novella appears to have just shifted from being a tale of tragedy and horror to one worth having followed. Biden just had a televised ceremony in which he let some of his recent cabinet appointees introduce themselves. The inclusion of John Kerry as “Climate Czar” was especially heartwarming, as were the words of everyone else. I haven’t learned yet what prompted Trump to allow the transition to go forward. Maybe it wasn’t his doing–I’ll find out–but I wanted to acknowledge the resurgence of hope for the United States. I really prefer using the word “America,” but recall that we aren’t the entire continent.
A useful perspective given…A Ravitch Reblog
I have one good reason to support Joe Biden. It can be summed up in one five-letter word: Trump.
Reader Randy Abraham offers more reasons:
The twittersphere has recently been aflame over Bernie Sanders’ decision to suspend his presidential campaign, and then his recent endorsement of frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden.
His most fervent supporters contend that Biden offers them nothing beyond a “not-Trump” candidacy.
This is what I say to them.
How about a sane immigration policy that does not separate families in crisis or lock children in cages?
How about health care policy that would boost subsidies for struggling families, lower the eligibility age for Medicare, provide a public option, and negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical firms?
How about forgiving student debts for low income students that were incurred at state and community colleges and historically black colleges and universities?
How about raising the minimum wage?
