“President Biden is sensibly saying what he cannot sensibly mean. By vowing to run again, he delays becoming diminished as yesterday’s news. And he delays the distraction of Democrats searching for his successor. That search is, however, imperative. … Neither party can responsibly participate in presenting the nation in 2024 with a spirit-crushing Biden-Trump 2.0. The Democrats’ dilemma is especially difficult because Biden’s vice president is an incontinent producer of word salads who suffers from deficits of political talent and policy substance. It is, therefore, time for public discussion of Democrats who are plausible presidents. The nation could do worse than to start here.” (09/14/22)
