Former Vice President Joe Biden has been sending strong signals that he is planning to run for president in 2020. What he doesn’t seem to realize is that the Democratic Party has changed radically since the 2008 election, drifting way over to the far left.
Recently on MSNBC, a contributor made the reality quite clear.
The Washington Free Beacon has the details:
MSNBC Panelist to Biden: ‘Dude, It’s Over’
The topic of Biden’s plans for 2020 arose after MSNBC host Craig Melvin spoke to contributors Jason Johnson and Yamiche Alcindor about the former vice president’s recent headline-grabbing comments. On Tuesday, Biden said he would have liked to beat up President Donald Trump for his comments regarding women.
Melvin suggested Biden’s recent actions, which also include working with many notable Democrats at the Biden Institute, appear to indicate his intention is, as speculated, to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. Johnson and Alcindor agreed, however, that Biden is the “last thing” the Democratic Party needs.
“Safe to say, Yamiche, that Joe Biden is running for president in 2020?” Melvin asked.
Alcindor said it was difficult for her to guess if Biden was in fact planning to run but that it would not be good for Democrats for him to do so…
“Joe Biden is like, he’s like Brett Favre saying, ‘man, I could have played in the Super Bowl.’ Dude, it’s over,” Johnson said.

If Biden does run, he probably won’t even make it through the primary process.
