Four years ago, Democrats slouched to the polls and voted, holding their noses figuratively. Somehow the party had come up with a presidential candidate whom no one liked very much: Hillary Clinton.

Pitted against a risible president, Donald Trump, who is a climate change-doubting, class-dividing, race-baiting, immigrant-bashing, law-bending, treaty-tearing, dictator-loving, truth-challenged, dissembling incompetent, this time it should be an easy White House win for the Democrats.

Sadly I have to agree with Mr. King. Joe Biden is a "decent guy" but we need more than decency here. Biden was not my first choice I would have much rather seen a younger, newer face in the race. But he is what we have so I will be voting for him. I would vote for a cockroach before I would vote for Trump. But the democratic party better grow a spine and start playing by other rules than decency if we intend to win against the Republican indecency.
