Buttigieg: Biden Earned the Nomination

“Getting into this race was never just about becoming president. For us it was about working to unify the country and making sure we defeat Donald Trump and there came a point where I realized the best thing I could do in the service of those goals was to step aside and to support Vice President Biden.”

— Pete Buttigieg told NBC News that “by the time we had ran our fourth race it was clear the numbers weren’t there.”

Carlson Shows Who Is Really ‘Cynical and Darkly Clever’ — Him

“To the cynical and darkly clever people who run the Democratic Party, Biden’s fading intellect is not a handicap. It’s an opportunity. Joe Biden is weak, and he’s getting weaker. Ask anyone who knows him, or who’s watched him carefully over the past 50 years. Biden is noticeably more confused now than he was even last spring, when he entered the race. … Why is this good news for the Democratic establishment in Washington? Because it means they can control him. That’s one reason the other candidates were so eager to swing in behind Biden the instant he won a state.”

— Tucker Carlson argued that Joe Biden’s “fading intellect is not a handicap” but “an opportunity” for the Democratic establishment to control the resurgent White House hopeful, The Hill reports.

Bill Kristol Endorses Biden

“Though the situation is complex, the answer actually is simple. Whatever the substantive case for either Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren, and despite the flashes of electoral strength each has shown, neither is going to be the nominee. And despite what once seemed a possible, though unconventional, path to the nomination, it’s not going to be Mike Bloomberg either. So it’s Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Which means, if you’re inclined toward American constitutional democracy, the rule of law, and a free economic order — as well as a liberal world order anchored by the United States – it’s Joe Biden.”

— Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) endorsed Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race, which could give the former vice president a much-needed boost in the South Carolina primary race.
