of us doubt the wisdom of that.
BUT, Democrats are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, here. Joe is incompetent, sure. But Kamala is even worse, electorally.
Can you just imagine what the Black community would do if the DNC kicked her to the curb in favor of Gavin Newsom? The explosion would be nothing short of epic!
But Axelrod wants to see Joe bow out. It doesn’t seem like a wise move to me. Here’s what he says:
“It’s very late to change horses; a lot will happen in the next year that no one can predict & Biden’s team says his resolve to run is firm. He’s defied [conventional wisdom] before but this will send tremors of doubt thru the party–not ‘bed-wetting,’ but legitimate concern,” Axelrod wrote.
“The greatest concern is that his biggest liability is the one thing he can’t change,” Axelrod added. “Among all the unpredictables there is one thing that is sure: the age arrow only points in one direction.”
Axelrod is, of course, kind of bound to say some nice things about Biden, but the message is very clear: Get Biden the heck out of there because he won’t win!
