Dems Overestimate Biden’s Success

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Joe Biden's success has less to do with his qualities than those of his opponents. He beat an exceedingly weak field. Even liberals argue Biden won by default. Biden has taken to referring to himself as a “bridge,” as if his geriatric candidacy was little more than a stopgap measure for a party bereft of leadership. But Biden does have at least one advantage over the party’s last candidate, Hillary Clinton. He is not nearly as reviled as she was. Then again, he won’t be facing a rookie candidate in Donald Trump but rather an incumbent president with a record of demonstrable successes. Democrats who are reading too much into Biden’s comeback against an inept field may be in for a rude shock.
